The Holiday Tree Sale is back! The sale will be held at Bancroft Elementary School and is hosted by the school's PTA. Bancroft is located in Mount Pleasant at the corner of 18th & Newton Streets NW. The sale will take place on the playground behind the school (entrance on 18th) and in the cafeteria.
The tree sale is this Saturday and Sunday (Dec 8+9) each day from 10:00AM until 4:00PM. In addition to the trees, there will be roping for tying that thing down, wreathes for sale, and tree stands for sale. Like last year there will also be free neighborhood delivery service via red wagon; so cool! New this yea is craft-making for kids. They'll get a chance to make their own ornament, and later, hang it on that tree. Very cool.
If you decide to get a tree on Saturday (yes, earlier is better!) head on over to the Lamont Street Holiday Party or the Cheap Art Sale for a nice end to the afternoon.

You don't have to wait until this weekend for neighborhood holiday fun. Mount Pleasant Main Street is hosting a holiday party of their own tonight. Find those favorite (and ugly!), winter-themed sweaters and show them off at Marx Cafe tonight starting at 7:30PM. The 2012 Ugly Holiday Sweater Party is of course all fun and games. No one will make fun of you, not out loud. So dig down deep in your closets and let's compare notes!
Lots going on this week, and that's a good thing!
