HELPING CANCER SURVIVORS, ONE TREE AT A TIME

This is the ninth year for the popular fund-raising event, which features a dazzling array of custom-decorated holiday trees sponsored by area businesses, groups and individuals.

The trees will remain on display until Sunday at 5:00 p.m. The Festival also features The Marketplace, quilts, wreaths and other hand-crafted holiday gifts for sale, live entertainment on the hour, raffles, and a chance to win a Jewelry Designs shopping spree.
Festival hours are Saturday, November 19th from 10 am to 8 pm and Sunday, November 20th from 10 am to 5 pm. Admission is $10 Adults, $5 children and seniors, children under 5 Free.
