Organizations and individuals wishing to participate in the annual Christmas Tree exhibition at the Huron Event Center will have to hold off setting up their displays for little more than a week because of a scheduling conflict at the venue.
The facility will be clear and ready for the installation of trees beginning Nov. 30.
According to Spencer Nesson of the Huron Area Arts Council, exhibitors and viewers will have access to the location 24 hours a day and placement of trees will continue to be managed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Trees may be entered for judging in two classes, Youth (under 18) and General, with prizes to be awarded for beauty and originality. Judging will occur Dec. 11. Trees may be erected after that time but will not be eligible for judging.
Only artificial trees are permitted and trees should be six feet tall or taller. Objects or materials which may constitute a fire hazard will not be allowed in the display. Outlets are available, but exhibitors must provide their own extension cords.
Exhibitors may pick up the required entry forms at the desk of the Crossroads when they set up their trees. No early registration is required.
The exhibition will remain in place until the week of Jan. 15, to accommodate groups holding holiday parties at the event center.
