Registrations are open to decorate, display and donate a Christmas tree in the annual Festival of Trees benefitting the Miss Nebraska Scholarship Pageant and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
The festival will be held Nov. 23-25 at the Quality Inn & Suites/Sandhills Convention Center.
Thirty trees and 10 wreaths will once again being decorated to be displayed to the public and then auctioned at the end of the event, organizer Darrell Drullinger said.
"Not all of the trees are regular Christmas trees," Drullinger said. "Often the trees are decorated with themes promoting businesses, causes and other events, or sports teams. Some trees are beautiful while others are fanciful and full of whimsy and still others are actually practical. This year, several trees already registered will definitely be 'out of the box.'"
Spaces are filling. If interested in decorating a tree for a business, organization, group or as an individual, Drullinger at 308-532-9090 ext 189.
