While in the area visit the Tannebaum Forest open November 24th to December 17th, this enchanted forest at the Festhalle Barn is created by local businesses, artists and volunteers.  Live Christmas trees inspire holiday wishes while you visit with Santa and see the 17 foot tall handcrafted Weihnacht’s Pyramid.
