Festival visitors can enjoy a cookie and beverage while a wide range of entertainment is performed by local musicians and kids can visit with Santa during scheduled times as noted online. Tickets are available at the door. There is also a raffle and special holiday ornament for purchase.
The Festival of Trees is the largest annual special event fundraiser for the Aspirus Health Foundation. “This is the perfect kickoff to the holiday season,” said Kim Smerda, Fund Development Specialist for the Aspirus Health Foundation. “It brings the community together for a common cause to help people in our community.
