The Museum at Campbell River is getting ready to host its second annual Festival of Trees.

The trees have all been sponsored and decorated by local businesses, organizations and families, and each has its own unique theme.

The opening evening is Friday, Nov. 28 at 5 p.m. and the Changing Gallery will be alight with 20 gorgeous Christmas Trees for everyone to enjoy.

Bring a chair and stay and watch the Big Truck Parade from the Museum property!

Awards will be given to the decorators: Most Unique, Most Traditional, Best of Festival, and People’s Choice and the public are invited to come in and cast their vote.

The trees will be on view throughout December, and the Museum will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A running model train set up by the North Island Railroaders and an exhibit of nostalgic toys will also be on display in the gallery, as well as Ron Francis’ one of a kind collection of hand crafted wooden toys to complete the festive scene.

The Museum will be hosting other seasonal events such as Christmas Lego on Saturday, Dec. 6 from 1 to 3 p.m., Chestnuts and Carols on Saturday, Dec. 13 from 1-4 p.m. and Holiday Puppets on Saturday, Dec. 27 at 1-3 p.m.
