Decorators are getting ready for the Festival of Trees, which starts in Kenora and Dryden this coming Thursday. The event has raised more than $140,000 in seven years in Kenora. Their popular auction's Friday night.

The Festival of Trees concept has been used across North America for more than 40 years, in order to raise money for worthy causes. In Kenora, proceeds from the event help the Kenora and Lake of the Woods Regional Community Foundation. In Dryden, funds raised help Grace Haven seniors centre.
