Festival of Trees/Old Fashion Christmas – Call for Entertainment

Entertainment for Festival of Trees & An Old Fashion Christmas 2017

91.1 The Bridge is again coordinating the entertainment for the Festival of Trees 2017 and we are excited to have An Old Fashion Christmas at Heritage Park back this year. We anticipate both events to be great!

The 2017 Festival of Trees event will be held at MacDonald Island Park Nov. 17 – 19 in the Nexon Field House.

The Old Fashion Christmas 2017 will be held at Heritage Park Nov. 25th .

Your performance for the festival will entertain people as they give funds towards vital medical equipment, programs and services in Wood Buffalo and both events help people celebrate the holiday season and the spirit of giving.
