A fun Christmas tradition returns this year.  A fun event to find yourself a tree you don't even have to decorate. The Panhandle Community Services annual Festival of Trees is back.

The Festival of Trees has grown over the years and a few changes are happening this year, but we have all the details.

So what is Festival of Trees?  It's a fun event for families and adults.  You see, businesses and individuals from all over the area are given a Christmas tree and given the task of decorating it, and making it festive.  Each tree has it's own personality and theme.  No tree is the same, and all tress are up for grabs.  These unique and creative trees are put on display at the Festival of Trees event.    Then at the end of the event, the trees will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

The Festival of Trees, trees will be on display starting on Monday, November 12th at the Soncy Medical Center at 34th and Soncy.  Individuals can stop by and see the beautiful trees decorated and on display while the Medical Center is open.

Then coming up on Friday, November 16th from 6:30pm-9pm, the Festival of Trees Gala will take place at the Amarillo Civic Center Heritage Room.   The cost is $30 per person, or  $50 for couples.   You can enjoy food, beverages, live music, and of course bid on your favorite Christmas Tree.  All the Christmas tress will be auctioned off.    They will also have a silent auction and a bazaar available to purchase awesome gifts.
