Even though the temperatures are in the 60's, it will look a lot like Christmas at the Festival of Trees this weekend at the DoubleTree Hotel and Convention Center in downtown Cedar Rapids. This year's event will surely get you into the holiday spirit!

The Festival of Trees will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. The event is free and open to the public. More than 50 different trees will be decorated in a variety of different themes. If you'd like to take a tree home, you're in luck! Around 20 of the trees will be made available for auction. That takes place from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Along with the beautiful trees, there will be live entertainment and of course, Santa will stop by and visit too! If you plan on attending this year's Festival of Trees, plan ahead. Organizers are expecting nearly 10,000 people to visit this year's event!
