The Advocates for Developmental Disabilities will host their annual Festival of Trees event on Friday, November 18, at the Owatonna Holiday Inn. Doors will open at 7:30PM and the public is invited. Tickets are $30 and on sale now at CashWise, Hy-Vee, Kottke's or the ADD office. Tickets will also be available at the door.

There will be 52 decorated trees on display this year. This is down just two trees from last year. Each of the trees is decorated by a group of volunteers using a theme. Enjoy hors d'oeuvres and desserts while enjoying the trees. There will be a cash bar. There will also be a silent auction with a number of items including many gift baskets up for bids. New this year will be a selection of Christmas wreathes available for sale.

Those who can't make it can stop out from November 19 through November 26 and check out the beautifully decorated trees on display at the Owatonna Holiday Inn. This is free.
