From the food to the shopping to the Christmas trees, there’s so much to see and do at the 30th annual Festival of Trees, and it’s all for a good cause.

The carousel ride inside the Cow Palace at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium for Kennedy Krieger’s Festival of Trees is a favorite for children, while others prefer the many sweet samplings.

“This is pure Belgian chocolate. We don’t use any wheat or egg, and we only use 6 grams of pure organic sugar,” said Edward Heller, with Chocolate Moonshine DC.

Families have made the event an annual tradition, and they all like something different. The kids get their faces painted while mom and dad search for tree ideas.

“We look at all the trees and take pictures, and actually this year, I think there are more trees than there were last year,” said Sade Gray.

This year, more than 800 trees have been decorated by local artists for purchase, and they’re all unique.

The proceeds benefit the Kennedy Krieger Institute.

“Kennedy Krieger is a local organization right here in Baltimore-Washington, where we treat children and young adults that have disorders and diseases of the brain and spinal cord,” said Michele Mueller, director of special events at Kennedy Krieger.

Their goal is to raise more than $1 million this year.

“We think it’s going to be a record year, so we’re really excited about that. This is a huge source of funds for Kennedy Krieger, much-needed funds,” Mueller said.

In honor of the 30th year, the festival is celebrating its 1 millionth attendee this year, who will get tickets for life.

The event ends Sunday. Tickets can be purchased online here.
