Festival of Trees 2014

Every year I check out the Festival of Trees at the Empress Hotel. It’s a Christmas tree display where people/companies decorate a tree to raise funds for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. A lot of the trees were really well done!! Soooo less talk, more pictures!

Week 40 of HDR Project: Festival of Trees at The Empress Hotel

It’s hard to believe that it’s December already and it’s actually feeling more and more like Christmas. Usually I don’t really get into Christmas because a lot of places start playing Christmas music WAY too early, and people just go crazy. But this year it seems like things are going pretty well! I decided to check out the Festival of Trees at the Empress Hotel with my friend Matty. They display Christmas trees all over the place, and they’re really nice! All the trees are decorated by a different company/school/organization, and it’s to raise funds for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. So it’s pretty awesome. I’m going to try to keep a festive theme going for the next couple of weeks of my HDR project. So I suggest you all to go wander around downtown with a coffee/hot chocolate in hand and enjoy the city! Downtown Victoria is already really pretty too especially when (and after) the sun goes down. I feel so blessed to live in such a beautiful place!
