Festival of Trees and Trains Nov. 17-26

By Chris Slone

The Festival of Trees and Trains, now in its 33rd year, is set for Nov. 17-26.

Over the last two seasons, there were more than 16,000 people who attended the festival at the Paramount Arts Center, 1300 Winchester Ave., in Ashland, Kentucky.

Last year, there were more than 110 items on display.

The train has been described as the “largest G-scale” train east of the Mississippi. In the past, the massive train occupied much of the balcony area. However, now the train has been separated into two sections. One section can still be spotted in the balcony, but the second section has been moved to the lower theater area.

Many residents have spent time in their childhood at the festival. Now, those same individuals can be spotted bringing their children to the Paramount as this time-honored tradition is all about family.
