Photos: Festival of Trees begins today

Laura Alsum with Community Connections puts on the finishing touches Thursday to the more than 40 trees and wreaths decorated for the Festival of Trees in the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad Grange Hall. This is the 15th year for the festival, which is a fundraiser for Community Connections, a nonprofit that supports children, families and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Southwest Colorado. Each tree has a sponsor and some have donated the decorations and gifts to be given away by raffle. The festival will be open from 1 to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Admission is free, and there will be drinks, food, live entertainment and children’s games.
