IDAHO FALLS -- The Idaho Falls Festival of Trees will be living up to this year's theme, "A Christmas  to Remember."  A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 10 a.m., Nov. 16 at the Development  Workshop Inc., which will serve as this year's venue. Event dates are Nov. 16-20  

In response to the pandemic, the long-time holiday event will be much more  intimate than patrons are accustomed to, but the centerpiece of the affair will still be  dozens of unique, hand-crafted Christmas trees that are looking for a home.  

"We won't be having the kids singing groups and the live performance that people  are used to," event President Kathie Hendrix said. "But we'll have more than 30  beautifully decorated trees for sale, and that alone will be worth seeing. Our tree  decorators do some amazing things."  

Along with trees, decorations such as wreaths, front-porch displays and mantle  decorations will be for sale. The sale will be a hybrid affair. Viewing of items will be  available online at dwinc.org/festival-of-trees, with physical selection and sales  conducted by appointment. Those interested in purchasing items can reach volunteer  members of the board via the Idaho Falls Festival of Trees Facebook page, or by  contacting coordinator Misty Ashley at 208.200.1189 or scheduling a time via  dwinc.org/festival-of-trees.  

As always, the event is a fundraiser to benefit Development Workshop, Inc.,  dedicated to enriching the lives and independence of persons with disabilities at  Development Workshop, Inc. and the greater Idaho Falls community.  

"We also want people to remember that this is first-and-foremost a fundraiser,"  Hendrix said. "We hope we'll be fortunate enough to experience the same sense of  giving that people have shown us in the past."

Sponsorship opportunities are still  available. For more information contact Misty Ashley at 208.200.1189.
