Gambel Garden is planning a winter fun weekend, with festive greenery at the center. Visitors will be able to view the “Tree Festival”, a festival of trees decorated by local designers, teams and organizations, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., on December 3-4 at the historic Palo Alto House and Garden. The trees not only provide a spectacular view but also a silent auction for the benefit of Gambella’s paradise. Last year’s festival was all imaginary, but this year guests can see the trees and bid them head-on.
Outdoor events include wreath sales, holiday shopping, bakery and music.
Hosted by An Evening of Holiday Cheer on December 3, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Gambel Garden offers a one-night-only chance to see the decorated holiday trees. It also has the option of selling old furniture as well as bidding on holiday trees.
Younger visitors can visit the arts and crafts, free ice cream and Santa Claus, Greenwich and the Snow Queen.
Tree Festival tickets are $ 5 per person and An Evening of Holiday Cheer tickets for 55 adults and $ 45 for children (2-17 years). Gambling Garden is located at 1431 Waverley St., Palo Alto. Visit gamblinggarden.org for more information.
