Wetaskiwin’s Manluk Centre is looking to bring even more holiday cheer to the community with its inaugural Festival of Trees event.

“All it’s meant to do is engage people and bring people together,” said recreation program director Tasha Weatherill.

Trees registered by the business community will be displayed in public areas of the Manluk Centre from Dec. 9 to 31.

Visitors can vote on their favorite Christmas masterpiece using ballots provided on location and the winning tree will be announced Dec. 22.

“The winning organization or business, they will receive a Christmas gift basket,” said Weatherill.

Within the community the concept of the event was well received, and by the morning of Nov. 25 11 trees were registered. “It seems like there’s more and more coming every day,” said Weatherill, in an interview with the Pipestone Flyer.

There is no registration fee for the event and businesses are being encouraged to decorate their tree to reflect the business or community.
