Atlanta Hotel Creates New Holiday Tradition with Festival of Trees

- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Embassy Suites Atlanta Centennial Olympic Park, with nearly two-dozen special trees decorating the hotel's atrium.

The hotel's first annual Festival of Trees is happening now, and will continue through January 1st.  The event is a fundraiser, as more than twenty local non-profit organizations each decorated a tree and visitors can "vote" for their favorite with a donation to that tree's charity.  Each organization gets to keep the money its tree raises, and the tree with the most donations get an additional $1,000 from Ruth's Chris Steak House Restaurants.  There's no charge to visit the Festival of Trees -- and parking is free.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning at the Embassy Suites Atlanta Centennial Olympic Park, and got a look at this year's stunning creations.
