It’s that time of year already, and why not start celebrating this weekend? From now till December 4th from 10am-8pm, the Holiday Festival of Trees and Music has taken over the Lyme Art Association with a dazzling exhibit of Holiday Trees decorated for auction, a winter wonderland boutique, ‘Christmas Around the World’ miniature trees, community youth groups singing holiday music and crafts sponsored by Old Lyme Children’s Learning Center. Families and adults a like will enjoy this affordable Holiday extravaganza; Adults are only $8.00 and children 6-12 are $5.00 while children five and under are free. All proceeds go to Bring Our Music Back, Inc.  After enjoying the Holiday Festival stop by The Bee for our ‘Early Bee’ special. Available only at our 5pm seating, bring a guest and get half off your second entree. Sounds like a perfect day!

Whenever there is a cause and some creativity is being beckoned, our own Linnea Rufo is invited to join in on the action. The Bee and Thistle donated a beautifully adorned tree to the Holiday Festival, entitled “Oh Christmas Bee”. Decorated with glittering butterflies and bees our tree was quite the site to see.
