Excelsior Springs Festival of Trees
November 30, 2011
One highlights of the holiday season in Excelsior Springs is the Festival of Trees on display at the Hall of Waters. Local businesses decorate a tree for you to enjoy, and for the first time, we at the Excelsior Springs Branch have a tree in the festival.
Our theme was "Through the Years," displaying numerous photos of past librarians and the local buildings that have housed the library through its many years of history. There has been a public library in town since 1909, beginning with a C.I.A. (Civic Improvement Association) Library to the current MCPL Excelsior Springs Branch, where we just celebrated 25 years at our current location on Kearney Road.
Excelsior Springs was honored in 2009 by the President of the United States as a Preserve America Community, and our annual Festival of Trees played a significant role in bringing that recognition to our town. We hope you can visit the Festival of Trees now through Jan. 2, 2012. The hours are Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
