I’m sorry I’m one of “those people” and Christmas can never come early enough. This is why we’ve already started our Holiday Traditions Bucket List 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
This weekend we visited the Festival of Trees at the Orlando Museum of Art! Basically a Christmas Wonderland of trees, gingerbread houses and a craft fair. You can pick up your tickets online or pick them up at the door (we ordered online – because it was WAY easier. The lines for tickets can get pretty long). $15 per person and $5 (cash only) for parking – you can see more information here .
Don’t get swept up when you first walk in. Head straight for the raffle booth (if that’s your thing – like it is ours). We frequently visit the museums for free so we don’t mind giving them a little extra money during the holidays.
Did you know that you can visit all of your local museums for free the first weekend of the month? In any state?? If you are a cardholder through Bank of America – check out their “Museums on us” site and see what places are free in your area!
ANYWAYS RAFFLE TICKETS – $1 per raffle ticket. Throughout the museum there are small gift boxes for you to place your raffle tickets in. To give you the chance for winning that particular tree, gingerbread house OR gift from a local vendor. Choose your boxes wisely!
We grabbed out raffle tickets and we were off! We visited each room and checked out each tree. Look closely at a lot of the trees and wreaths, they have incredible detail
Throughout the museum they even have small “craft fair” shops set up. Perfect for grabbing some early Christmas gifts for family and friends. They even have their very own Santa for kids to take pictures with – the lines were pretty long though so be warned.
Some trees even had incredible themes – like the World Travel themed tree above.
We had so much fun on our first Christmas Tradition! Visiting the Festival of Trees was an incredible experience and WELL worth the price. It really got me in the mood for the upcoming holiday season….who knows maybe I’ll put up my own tree this weekend 😏😏 SO if you are looking for something to do with your family this weekend – stop by the Orlando Museum of Art for an incredible festive time!
