Festival of Trees tickets go on sale

DANVILLE — Provena United Samaritans Medical Center Foundation announces the special events and ticket information for 2011 Festival of Trees: Home for the Holidays, Nov. 12-19, at the David S. Palmer Arena.

Returning favorite special events include the Polar Express, Teddy Bear Breakfast, and Ladies’ Luncheon. Two previous events — the beer tasting and wine tasting — have been combined into one larger event: Tastes of the Season, which also will feature a live band.

Several other new events have been added, in part because of the festival extending to eight days from five. These include:

--A Heroes Lunch — Children enjoy lunch with a parent or grandparent, dressed as their favorite “hero,” whether that’s a police officer, soldier, fireman or superhero. Lunch will be served by local heroes from the Danville Fire Department and the Danville Police Department. A magic show, free temporary tattoo, superhero photo and special performance by the Star Wars Stormtroopers round out the event.

--Princess Tea Party — A one-of-a-kind event for girls. Participants will enjoy the royal treatment that includes a princess hairstyle and make-up. They will be crowned with a tiara and showered with gifts, including a glitter tattoo. They will have their picture taken and enjoy treats and entertainment while seeing a special appearance by royalty. Princess attire is encouraged.

--Crystal Ball — A special evening of music and dancing with a little sweetheart. This is a great opportunity for dads and their daughters or moms and their sons to get dressed up, enjoy light refreshments and share a memorable evening together. All ages are welcome. A photographer will be on hand to capture the memories and all guests receive a keepsake photo frame and goody bag. Formal attire is recommended.
