Clinton’s first Festival of Trees set for Nov. 25
Decorating will run from Nov. 19-24
CLINTON — Decorating will begin on Sunday, Nov. 19 for Clinton’s first-ever Festival of Trees. Co-organizer Nate Ennis talked to the city council about the festival during the council’s Tuesday night meeting.
“I think I spoke to each of you about the idea a group of us came up with a few weeks ago to bring some Christmas cheer to the square,” Ennis said.
Businesses, organizations and individual residents could enter a tree in the festival for a $50 donation to the Clinton Festival of Trees. Tree decoration will take place from Nov. 19-24. The tree-lighting ceremony is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 25 on Mr. Lincoln’s Square.
Commissioner John Wise was impressed with the plan. He said he was familiar with a similar tree festival held by Lincoln each year.
“When you come up with something that’s positive, it’s really a great benefit for all of us,” Wise said.
