Fantasy of Trees a long-time tradition at Stuhr Museum

By  | 

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - It's a tradition Stuhr Museum workers say has been going strong for over four decades. It's the annual Fantasy of Trees.

Something unique about this year's festivities is one of the winners, Habitat for Humanity, actually has a mantle display instead of a tree.

There are several categories, including best recycled, best-hand made and most creative, to name a few. But museum workers say organizations don't just come out to win, but to showcase their group and be a part of a shared exhibit.

"This is a community exhibit, and that's one of the best part about it. You come and get a sense of the community. You see a lot of different people doing a lot of different things, just like in our community. I think that's cool," said Stuhr Museum Marketing Director Mike Bockoven.

Bockoven feels people keep coming back to see the Christmas tree displays as part of their holiday tradition to see the creativity and the collaboration of participating groups.

A few of the organizations taking part this year are Grand Island Public Schools, Teammates, YWCA and Primrose. You can check out all the winners at the
Stuhr Museum website.
