It’s not too late to enter and decorate a tree in Baytown Historical Museum’s Christmas Tree Fantasy. 

Trees will be going up beginning today and will continue through Nov. 26.

Organizers hope to see more new participants enter the contest this year as well as participants from the past. 

Baytown Kennel Club, Bayer Heritage Federal Credit Union, Eddie V. Gray Wetlands Center, Service League of Baytown, Pilot Club of Baytown and others continue to participate in the Christmas Tree Fantasy year after year.

The Baytown Historical Museum will have an unveiling of the trees at the Open House which will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the museum on Dec. 2. That’s when the community is invited to view the trees and vote for their favorites. 

Voting will continue through Dec. 14. 

The Open House event features not only the trees, but music which will be provided by Stephen F. Austin Elementary choir and Carver Elementary choir. Santa will also attend the event to visit and hand out gifts to the children.

“This is a very special evening at the museum. All the participants go the extra mile with decorations, and this is the night that their trees will be on display for judging and ballots will be cast,” said Terry Presley, Museum Director.

Organizers welcome any individual, business, school or organization to enter the contest.

There is no cost to enter. There are certain requirements for the trees. 

Participants must furnish their own tree and decorations and trees should be between four feet and seven feet tall.
