When you visit the Festival of Trees at the Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park in Big Stone Gap, VA, you realize the importance of community participation. Over 80 trees, mantels, and doorways throughout the mansion are decorated by community organizations. Each visitor who tours the festival gets a chance to vote for their favorite tree. The following groups were the top three.
“Mary, Did You Know?” – East Park Avenue Baptist Church of Norton, VA
The Joy of Pepsi” - Pepsi Bottling Company of Norton, VA
“Whimsical Colors” – L.J. Horton Florist of Big Stone Gap, VA
