For more than 30 years, Greensboro Beautiful has helped usher in the holiday spirit with the sale of holiday greenery and a festive day of pick-up. This year was no different, except it was! The Holiday Greenery Festival was held for the first time ever on a weekend and in a new location, the Lewis Recreation Center. On Sunday, November 23, 2014, scores of volunteers and staff had filled the center with a truckload of wreaths, roping, and poinsettias and dozens of local vendors set up their booths offering an incredible selection of handmade items for gift shoppers. With live music, children's activities, and a dining room with hot lunch, the venue was filled with the sights, sounds, and smells of the holiday season.
A wonderful holiday tradition for many Greensboro families, the Holiday Greenery Festival is also the biggest fundraising event Greensboro Beautiful holds each year.
Thank you for your wonderful support of making and keeping our city beautiful during the holidays and all year long!
