Rockin Round the Christmas Tree--Providence Festival of Trees

Exhibit Hall A. Christmas trees, big and small. Santa. Gingerbread houses. Teddy bear hospital, and more!

Let's spend a few hours perusing all that is the holidays, at this family friendly event. Stay for a little or as long as you want, and leave when you please--very informal!   Event closes at 5pm. This is very family friendly. For the kids there's story time, dancing events on stage, teddy bear hospital, face painting, story time, decorate your own gingerbread cookies, plus photos with Santa.

You can use a tripod if desired, the aisles are very wide (around 10 ft wide), just make sure it's not a tripping hazard. Monopods or flash would work well too. This is a low light venue! It's also perfect for Lensbaby and macro photos. See below for photo examples.
