Festival of Trees goes virtual

Trees will be viewed through Facebook Live

Festival of Trees will be closed to the public due to the current rise of COVID-19 cases in Alberta — but still accessible online.

“We thank everyone who had made plans to attend this year’s Festival of Trees and we are grateful to our sponsors for their continued support and understanding. We look forward to a time where we can gather again,” organizers said in a statement.

The tree room can be viewed through Facebook Live every day from Nov. 14 to 28.

Red Deer Regional Health Foundation on Facebook, at www.facebook.com/rdrhfoundation, will notify the public when the room goes live.

The tree room can also be viewed from inside Bower Place shopping mall, but will not be accessible to the public.

The silent auction catalogue will be accessible at www.reddeerfestivaloftrees.ca/auction where bids can also be placed.

Christmas Jingle Cash Lottery tickets will be available at www.reddeerfestivaloftrees.ca/jingle. The top prize is $10,000 cash, plus an early bird prize of $2,500 to be drawn on Dec. 4.

Ticket packages start at $10 and are available until Dec. 18; final draws on Dec. 23.

This year funds raised during the festival will go towards the purchase of electronic fetal monitoring for Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre and other care centres in central Alberta.
