A 19- year-old tradition continues in
Lufkin as hundreds of trees are display in the Museum of East Texas.
105 trees will be on
display the day after Thanksgiving.
Each tree is sponsored by
a local individual or corporation, members of the public, the Museum Guild and
local designers worked together to decorate the trees.
The trees featured themes
from Monopoly, wine and even Popeye's Chicken.
"The people have a
chance to be able to see all different kinds of decoration, they have the
opportunity to be able to take family pictures and it's free so it's something
great to do during the holiday," said Susan Belasco, President, and Museum
Proceeds from the Festival
of Trees will go to summer art camp scholarships.
The trees will be on display through January 1st.
During December the Museum of East Texas will
be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
