Centennial High School hosts its fourth annual Las Cruces Festival of Trees in the school’s performing arts lab, 1950 Sonoma Ranch Blvd.

The event is 4-8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, and 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7.

Admission is $5 adults, $3 students and free for children under age 5.

It will include some two dozen decorated trees and holiday wreaths, said event coordinator Melody Hagaman, a computer science teacher at CHS. The event is sponsored by CHS’s Science Olympiad and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs and supports CHS STEM programs.

During the festival, “trees decorated by local businesses, clubs and nonprofits, will be on display,” Hagaman said. Visitors can purchase raffle tickets for their favorite tree(s), vote in the decorating contest, visit the gingerbread exhibit, take photos with Santa Claus, listen to live holiday music provided by local musicians and shop the holiday wares fair. Children can decorate cookies and make holiday ornaments at an events crafts table just for them.

The festival will also include live performances by Dance Eclectic at 6 p.m. Friday and at 2:30 and 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

Dance Eclectic formed in 2012 as a dance collective to give teens and adults performance opportunities and to create and perform members’ choreography.
