The event runs until Dec. 5.
“We probably have about 10 trees, and there are a number of wreaths, swags and centre-pieces – all kinds of really neatly-decorated Christmas articles out there,” Koreen Lawrence, one of the three decorating co-chairs for the Festival of Trees, said.
Opening night festivities Friday include a lighting of the “big tree” as well as an opportunity to be the first to view the holiday items on display in the silent auction. Visitors can also enjoy complimentary hot chocolate and appetizers.
A gala event is planned for Saturday evening with dinner, a live band and a live auction.
On Sunday, it’s Family Day with a variety of special offers on the agenda, including a cookie decorating event.
Other highlights include a Christmas High Tea on Dec. 5.
Tickets must be purchased in advance for the dinner gala and High Tea events.
“We encourage the public to come and check out all the beautiful articles,” Lawrence said of the festive items on display, adding that all funds raised during the Festival of Trees will benefit healthcare at the Battlefords Union Hospital.
