Day Care Kids Decorate for Festival of Trees

Posted: Updated:

Children at St Vincent Day Care decorated gingerbread cookie ornaments on Friday for the upcoming annual Festival of Trees  next week at the Bayfront Convention Center.

Erie's Panera Bread partnered with Saint Vincent and the Children's Miracle Network to  sponsor a tree this year. Panera brought glitter, glue, and gingerbread ornaments to decorate. They also brought snacks for the kids.

About 45 kids, newborn to age five, joined in on the fun.

"They were so excited. They were counting down for days, 'Is today the Panera day?' and looking out the door for them. And parents were excited to be a part of this. I know they'll be coming in to the festival of trees to try to find their child's cookie on the tree," said Arlene McMohn, Director of Child Services at St. Vincent Day Care.

There will be nearly eighty trees at the Festival of Trees, which runs from Nov. 27th - Dec. 1.
