ASHLAND, Ky. — The 32nd annual Festival of Trees and Trains kicks off Friday at the Paramount Arts Center in Ashland.
A fundraiser for the Paramount Woman’s Association, the 10-day festival showcases nearly 200 Christmas trees and wreaths donated to the Paramount Woman’s Association for silent auction, which supports the PAC’s education department.
In addition to full-sized trees, the festival will feature trees from 30 local school classrooms, mini trees and “itsy bitsy” trees.
Also featured is the largest G-Scale temporary layout on public display in the country, which is more than 3,000 square feet, with more than 600 feet of track, spanning two stairwells and the balcony seats of the Paramount.
The festival is open daily from 10 a.m.- 9 p.m. Nov. 18-27 and from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. on Sundays. The event is also open from 4-9 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
