(Neb.)-Winter Festival Of Trees Still Available For Viewing At Courthouse  Listen

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 12/20/2012 10:35 AM

(CHADRON)-A bit of Christmas spirit and holiday cheer has settled on the Dawes County Courthouse. The courthouse is temporarily home to 34 uniquely decorated Christmas trees during the annual Winter Festival of Trees. Each of the trees, which are spread out over three floors, are individually decorated by a local company or organization. Tree decorations range from homemade stars and trees by Chadron grade schoolers, to popcorn and cranberries and other historical themes, to flowers and feathers and bright lights, photos of various individuals, ribbons, and even photo CDs on our very own KCSR/KBPY tree.
The display of trees, which is sponsored by the Fur Trade Days Committee, wraps up on Friday, so for those who have yet to stop by and view the sights of the season, there is still time. Make sure to take a small donation as well, if money allows, as the committee is hoping to raise $2,000 for next year’s insurance on Fur Trade Days activities.
All floors of the courthouse are accessible via the elevator at the back of the building, so kids of all ages can come see the trees. The courthouse will be open for Festival of Trees visitors from 8:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m. through Friday.
