Providence Festival of Trees Kicks Off

MEDFORD, Ore. – The trees are being trimmed and the lights are being hung as a decades-old tradition in the Rogue Valley kicks off. Designers spent Tuesday putting the finishing touches on the Providence Festival of Trees.

The opening gala is Wednesday night at the Medford Armory and this year the proceeds will help the Providence Pallative Care Program. Organizers say there are plenty of creative themes for the trees this year, including angry birds, and even a hologram tree.

“We have 38 large trees, lots of mini trees, table top trees, wreaths. Some incredible ingenuity and creativity this year, so we’re excited to be able to share this with the community,” said Providence spokesperson Jodi Barnard.

The public will be able to take a look at all of the trees from Friday through Sunday. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and children.
