Anticipation and excitement is in the air as we look forward to the next festival in the Amana Colonies! The day after Thanksgiving, the Tannenbaum Forest opens to kick off the holiday season! It is an amazing experience to walk through the forest of trees all decorated differently. Local businesses sign up for a tree or trees and then “the sky’s the limit” for decorating ideas and themes! This year there are to be about 47 different trees in the forest, along with Santa, a children’s corner, photo backdrop areas, and a special booth to get a snack to enjoy as you walk through the forest! The pictures following are from past years in the Tannenbaum Forest.
