LOCAL 8 WEATHER ALERT: As periods of heavy rain and thunder move into East Tennessee between now and the 4th of July Weekend, FLOODING is a concern, due to a saturated ground. Watch for water-covered roads, creeks and streams to run high. Remember TADD, "turn around don't drown."
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - It's been another successful year for Knoxville's Fantasy of Trees.
More than 50,000 from around the area visited the event, and we're told it's a similar crowd compared to years passed.
The event hopes to raise about $350,000 for the East Tennessee Children's Hospital. That money will be used to replace surgery equipment.
That's the great thing about it, it's a great outing for a good cause.
"It's also a time for families to come together enjoy their Thanksgiving holiday and really kick off Christmas season with us. We like to provide those family moments and really it's a tradition for many," said Seth Linkous, the director of marketing for the East Tennessee Children's Hospital.
