Third Annual Festival of Trees at Embassy Suites

The Festival of Trees made the holidays much brighter last year by raising more than $23,000 for 20 local non-profit agencies. This year, organizers behind the Embassy Suites Atlanta Centennial Olympic Park’s Third Annual Festival of Trees are hoping to spread the holiday cheer even further.

The hotel’s Festival of Trees continues through January 1st, filling the atrium of the Embassy Suites Atlanta Centennial Olympic Park with 30 trees, each decorated by a local non-profit agency.  The display is free and open to the public, and visitors are encouraged to “vote” for his or her favorite tree by making a monetary donation toward its decorating organization.
