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.
