The Kennedy Krieger Festival of Trees comes back to the Timonium Fairgrounds right after Thanksgiving, November 26-28, 2010.

The Train Garden

Children of all ages anticipate this weekend where it is a Wonderland of decorated trees, Santa, games, crafters, activities, and more!

The train garden is always a huge hit — my son always begs to go back to it — even with all of the rides and games to play!

Milkshake will be there for two performances on Friday, and there will be ballet, dance, comedy, and music performances throughout the weekend.

As I mentioned in my post about the Festival of Trees last year, I want to a few tips before you head to the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium this weekend.

1) Buy your tickets beforehand. If you order them online, you can save $2 off adult admission, and you can pick them up at Will Call at the Timonium Fairgrounds when you arrive. The tickets are good for any of the days it is open. Here is the link to the Kennedy Krieger site to order them.

2) If you have children, GET THE $20 ACTIVITY PACKET (also available to order online prior to & pick up at Will Call). Most of the games & activities require tickets or a wrist band and once your kids see them, they will want to play them. We learned the hard way our first time two years ago, and had to go back to stand in line to buy them. Just get them up front!

3) It can be very crowded at times. Some areas are more crowded than others, but especially at lunchtime around the eating area, it can be very busy.

The Festival of Trees is Friday & Saturday November 26 & 27 from 10 am – 9 pm and Sunday, November 28 from 10 am -6 pm at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium. The cost before discount is $10 adults, $5 for children 5-12 years old & senior citizens. Children 4 & under are free.

This is so much fun and for a great cause. I hope to see you there!
