Festival of Trees gets underway in Rothschild


A popular holiday tradition lit up the atmosphere in Rothschild.

The festival of trees kicked off Tuesday night at the Stoney Creek Inn.  About 60 decorated trees are on display. All of them will be raffled off to raise money for Aspirus Comfort Care and hospice services.

"A lot of the trees are decorated in memory or honor of someone we have a very special tree that was decorated by two community groups in honor of a mother who had passed away this year, and it's a garden theme because that's what she cared about," said organizer Kalynn Pempek.

This is the 16th year for the event. It runs through Sunday.
