Fantasy of Trees wraps up

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.
