The exhibit brought around 61,000 visitors in to see the trees and decorations.

The event allowed guests to travel through a forest of more than 350 custom-designed trees, holiday accessories, front porch scenes, door designs and table centerpieces.

The proceeds from Fantasy of Trees benefited East Tennessee Children's Hospital, Knoxville's only not-for-profit Comprehensive Regional Pediatric Center.
