Hundreds of Designer Trees on Display
These trees are all for sale and, in addition, there will be 2 ½ ft trees in all different themes and wreaths and swags for sale with all the proceeds going to CP Nassau. Bids will be taken for all the trees and the tree will be sold on Sunday to the highest bidder. There will be some “buy now” possibilities too!

There will be continuous entertainment including many talented dance and choral groups. Liat Gayr, a dancer with Leggz Ltd. Dance of Rockville Centre and a student at Hewlett High School has danced at the Festival of Trees for many years, comments, “As a member of the Leggz ensemble, my participation is a great experience and it helps the cerebral palsy center. How amazing it is for us dancers to get to do what we love and help people with disabilities in the process.” Look for lots of costumed characters too!

Decorate a Cookie
Located in Hangar 2 – kids will have the great opportunity to decorate a cookie with lots of gooey icing and fun toppings! Let’s see how creative you can be!

Culinary students from the Barry Tech Institute in Westbury are creating original gingerbread creations!
