Ah, the annual rite of Collinsville Christmas, the Festival of Trees. Today was the day when 40 some organizations decorated their trees. At 9 tonight the trees will be judged, the winners announced tomorrow night at the dinner. All the trees and many wreaths will be auctioned off during the course of the evening.
Here's a quick look at some of how the trees looked as they were being trimmed.
Be back tomorrow for a look at the real thing, the Festival of Trees.
