How do I get festival tickets for father-daughter event?

I write this out of frustration and sheer disappointment.

I write this out of frustration and sheer disappointment.

I am a single father of two beautiful girls who for the past three years have wanted nothing more than to go to the Festival of Trees father-daughter evening out.

We budget every year, because I need to also travel from Edmonton, in hopes that I can acquire tickets.

However, I have not been able to buy tickets because they repeatedly sell out. I go online when the tickets go on sale and they are not available.

This year I was told that most of the tickets sold out even before they went on sale. I feel like this event is an exclusive club which no one else can join.

As a family we annually attend the Festival of Trees event and the highlight of Christmas morning is opening the gifts they purchased in Santa’s Workshop.

My girls are heartbroken that their dad once again cannot get tickets for this event.

Please tell me how I can get tickets for this event without going online and seeing people double the price?

Also, I would like to know that tickets will be sold in a fairly next year.

Finally, how do you tell two girls that they are not going to this event when they already picked out dresses?
