Ticket are going fast. The event starts at 7:30p.m.

You might remember that the popular Wonderland Christmas Tree farm had to stop selling trees last year a little early because all of the trees allotted for the season sold out quickly. That’s why you’ll want to take part in Early Bird Weekend at the Farm this Saturday and Sunday. The farm will be open from nine to six each day and it’s open to the public with no ticket required. If you miss the Early Bird Weekend, Wonderland Farm’s official opening will be November 26.
