How lovely are your branches

December 5, 2014

Think holiday trees can’t grow by the ocean?  Think again.  For the second year, the  Sea Festival of Trees at the Blue Ocean Music Hall has brought whimsical holiday cheer to Salisbury Beach.  The Festival features two floors of bright, colorful, and creative trees dressed to the nines for the holiday season by local businesses, families, schools, individuals, and groups.

Did we mention that you can enter a raffle to bring home one of the trees?  Along with the tree and wonderful decorations, many of the trees come with additional gifts such as a bicycle, toys, scratch tickets, and gift cards.

When you’re done navigating and marveling at the trees, you are invited to enjoy music, stage performances, indoor ice skating, and maybe even a visit with the big man himself – Santa!  Don’t miss the Giant Gingerbread House display!

The festival runs through Saturday, December 6th.  For more information on the Sea Festival of Trees, visit  We visited the festival earlier this week and had a ball (and are keeping our fingers crossed that we win a tree!).  We won’t spoil the fun, but check out some of our photos from the festival below.
