A Winter Wonderland!
A magical wonderland of sparkling lights and theme-decked trees sets the holiday stage in early December in Lewistown during the annual Festival of Trees.
Participants from throughout the community decorate Christmas trees and donate them to the festival, which is a major fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of Lewistown. More than 30 large trees are filled to the brim with so many presents, gift certificates and surprises that Scrooge himself could not resist feeling like a child just looking at the them all.
In the past, trees have included themes such as “HCR, Inc’s Airplane Tree,” decorated with electric airplanes, round-trip airline tickets from Big Sky Airlines, an antique prop, flying lessons and much more. Other trees have gotten their extra sparkle not just from lights, but jewels, like “Don’s Store’s Yogo Sapphire and Silver Tree.”
New sponsors and participants are always welcome! If you would like to know more about this event, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at (406) 535-2257. Ask for Abby.
