37th Annual Festival of Trees
Since 1978, the talented members of the Dr. Forrest L. Flashman Guild have presented the Festival of Trees, a display of beautifully decorated Christmas trees, each with its own unique theme and style.

The trees will be on display from November 22 through December 2, 2014 at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in their lobby and grand motor entrance. Each tree will be accompanied by a sign with the photo and story of one of our courageous Seattle Children's patients.
