The Festival of Trees kicked off the four-day event with a special preview on Thursday, giving adults the chance to leisurely inspect the more than 45 decorated trees, along with gingerbread houses, wreaths, stockings and a holiday boutique.

On Friday, kids in grades 7-10 are invited to the “Jingle Jam” from 9:30-11:30 p.m. Music will be provided by a DJ. Cost is $10, including free refreshments.

The decorated trees were judged and rated; read the results at the end of the photo essay. For more information on the Festival of Trees, click here.
