Here is what I read about the festival of trees:
Gingerbread cottages, sparkly trees and baubles embrace the spirit of Christmas during the Festival of Trees at Salt Lake City's South Towne Exposition Center. Highlights include a visit from Santa and handmade treats.
Holiday crafts and live entertainment round off the seasonal fun at Salt Lake City's Festival of Trees, with proceeds (over US $1 million each year) going to patients at Primary Children's Medical Center.
First held in 1971 with 60 decorated trees, Salt Lake City's Festival of Trees now features some 600 decorated trees of all shapes and sizes. Get into the Christmas spirit early and help a very good cause.
