TREE SPONSOR GUIDELINES & TIMELINES
You are responsible to provide all decorations for your tree. Any lights on the trees may be solar, battery powered, or electric (electricity will be provided). The City of Coatesville is not responsible for any damage to or items stolen from decorated trees. You are free to express your creativity and originality, but we ask that your tree represent your business, organization, or family.
Decorating Procedures and Guidelines
For weather-related and environmental reasons, the following items are not allowed in tree decorating:
- Berries, popcorn, dried fruit, etc.
- Candles, aerosol snow or other flammable items
- Flocking or tinsel
- Paper, cardboard or any other material that may be damaged due to weather conditions (unless laminated to withstand possible weather conditions)
Trees must be decorated by the end of the day on Thursday, December 7th. Voting begins on Friday, December 8th and will run until 5:30 PM on Saturday, December 9th.
A panel of judges will select the top two tree displays, and a “People’s Choice” vote will determine third place.
Voting can take place onsite at the Pavilion of Trees via the QR codes located at each tree during the voting period. Voting is limited to 1 vote per email address. Sponsors are encouraged to utilize social media, company websites, etc to promote their tree and ask their networks for votes! Use the hashtags #PavilionOfTrees and #ChristmasInCoatesville when promoting your tree!
The top three tree displays will be awarded cash prizes ($1500 for first place and $1000 for second and $500 for third place), which will be donated on the sponsors’ behalf to the local charity or non-profit of the sponsors’ choice. Remaining proceeds will be donated to Coatesville Parks and Recreation.
Tree Pick-Up and Removal Timeline
Sponsoring businesses and organizations can opt to donate their tree to a local family in need. Tree Sponsors are responsible for coordinating pick-up. All trees and any remaining ornaments will be disposed of at the end of the holiday season.
