Fantasy of Trees, Knoxville - November 19-24
Post date: Dec 16, 2018 9:37:26 AM
We returned for the third year in a row to Knoxville's Fantasy of Trees, a great fundraiser for East Tennessee Children's Hospital and a holiday tradition for folks all over the East Tennessee Region. This year, the event had over an astounding 63,000 attendees--with about half being kids 12 and under!
Our display was back in the entrance hall, greeting visitors on their way to the convention floor! Our 100% LEGO tree returned, complete with ornaments and freshly flocked. The tree is built from just a handful of different parts, primarily the classic 2x4 brick in green, and contains over 20,000 pieces. 20 club members participated this year in the construction, with a team of 11 handling the setup of the tree and assorted displays. Check out the pictures below, and you'll see the results speak for themselves!
The hospital enjoyed another successful fundraiser, and we're already looking forward to next year!
