The Carroll Arts Center was bustling with generosity during its 22nd annual Festival of Wreaths that ended Sunday, Dec. 8. An estimated 3,500 visitors attended the event that featured 151 unique theme wreaths.

The wreaths were created by individuals, businesses, and clubs and were offered to the public in a 10-day silent auction that raised more than $20,000 for the Carroll County Arts Council.
