During Festival of Trees, guests took part in scavenger hunts for The Elf on the Shelf or the Weihnachtzgurken (10 pickle ornaments hidden in trees throughout the building). In addition, the Stardust Terrace Café by Jonathan Byrd’s offered extended hours and additional menu options, including holiday-inspired treats and tasty specialty beverages, and the Basile History Market featured a large selection of Indiana products for shoppers to check off their holiday gift lists.
