Hundreds of people gathered for an afternoon of festivity at Princess Alexandra Middle School’s newly-returned Festival of Trees.

Activities included musical performances, a tea room, personalized decorations, a chance to sit on Santa’s lap, as well as touring the trees decorated by various businesses and organizations in town.

All money raised through the sale of tickets, draws, and treats will go to support Hay River’s schools in the coming year.
