From traditional glitter and gold to an out-of-this-world tree experience, the 2014 Holiday Tree Festival, sponsored by the volunteers of Akron Children’s Hospital, has something for everyone. Check out the 33rd annual Holiday Tree Festival, now through Nov. 30 at the John S. Knight Center in Akron. Admission is free.
Thirty-two years ago a committee of volunteers, including Marilyn McGuckin, and the Quaker Square Hilton had a fundraising goal in mind, surrounding the holidays. The committee got together and wrote a letter asking community leadership for donations of trees and other holiday items.
