Festival of Wreaths needs decorators for competition

The Carroll County Arts Council is seeking decorators for its sixth annual Festival of Wreaths.

The festival will be held Dec. 2-6 at the new Carroll Arts Center in Westminster. The wreaths will be offered to the public through a weeklong silent auction. Last year's event featured 150 wreaths and raised more than $10,000.

This year's event is expected to be bigger now that the Arts Council has moved into its larger quarters. In addition to viewing the wreaths, patrons will be shown free holiday movie classics on the theater's big screen.

Businesses and clubs can take part in the festival to help the nonprofit arts council. The public votes for favorite wreaths and prizes are awarded in several categories.

All registered decorators will be provided with a free 24-inch artificial green wreath, unless they prefer to create an entry from other materials. Participants must register by Nov. 14 and decorated wreaths are due back by Dec. 1.

Guidelines and registration forms are available at the arts council, 410-848-7272.
