Merry-Time Festival of Trees Returns

Create a new holiday tradition by visiting the Door County Maritime Museum, 120 N. Madison Ave. in Sturgeon Bay, during the eighth annual Merry-Time Festival of Trees. Beautifully decorated trees and wreaths donated by businesses and individuals will grace every gallery during the festival, which will run daily, Nov. 8 – Dec. 10. Museum visitors may also purchase raffle tickets for the chance to win one of the decorated trees.

A new tug-lighting event will launch the festival this year. Join the community Nov. 8, 4-6 pm, to enjoy cocoa, cookies and carols and to see the 100-year-old tugboat John Purves draped with lights.
