The Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center is getting into the holiday spirit with the return of the popular Fashions for Evergreens decorated tree contest.

Now in its 16th year, the annual competition features themed trees decorated by 15 local businesses and organizations. Public viewing and voting will be through Dec. 12.

Visitors can vote in person by using a QR code at the inn or online on the inn’s Facebook page. The winning trees will be announced at an awards ceremony Dec. 15.

Trees will remain on display through Jan. 2.

“Each year, our foyer’s creatively designed trees present awe-inspiring decorating ideas in an extraordinary display. After you take in all of the dazzling trees, be sure to cast a vote for your favorite,” said the inn’s sales director, Teresa Hughes.

In addition, from 6-8 p.m. on Dec. 10 and 17,  the Blacksburg High School Madrigals will sing carols at the inn.

The inn will be closed for seven days beginning Dec. 23, reopening on Dec. 30. This will allow for property upgrades and system improvements to be completed.

For all inquiries, call 540-231-8000.
