5th Annual Festival of Trees, Traditions and Legends Awards Winners

The 5th Annual Festival of Trees, Traditions and Legends was held on Dec. 8 and 9th in both the Stone House and Carriage Houses on 245 Main Street, Deep River.

Despite the snowstorm, which added a special winter wonderland atmosphere to the evening, we had a record attendance that came to vote and view the wonderful selection of trees and decorations for this year’s event.  Voting was done by people’s choice in both Adult and Youth Categories and there was a Best of Show special ribbon award also.  The categories were Best Theme, Traditional and Most Creative Use of Materials.  Trees were presented by different civic organizations in Deep River and youth groups. Some visitors searched for the legends that were highlighted from our newest publication Deep River Stories.
