It's not quite Thanksgiving yet but already folks are getting prepped for Christmas.
And in Forest Park that means that two special Park District events are almost at hand.
The ever-popular Deck-A-Tree will be from Monday Dec. 3 to Thursday Dec. 6 at the park district headquarters, 7501 W. Harrison St. Trees will remain on display throughout the month.
Groups or individuals may decorate their own tree. Here's the deal: the park district will provide the tree and electricity. Make those ornaments nature friendly. The cost will be $35 before Nov. 22 for residents and $45 for non-residents. After that the cost goes up to $45 for residents and $55 for non-residents.
If you prefer for someone at the park district to decorate for you, here's the package: the park district will provide the tree, lights, ornaments and will even do it up. The cost of this Winter Wonderland package is $65 for residents before Nov. 22 and $80 for non-residents. After that the cost goes up to $75 for residents and $90 for non-residents.
Resident fee applies to Forest Park residents, groups or businesses.
