Christmas is less than three months away, and for what seems like the first time in decades, families will come together and celebrate the holidays. As much as it feels like decades, it's only been a few years, but you must admit nothing about those two years or the holidays have been the same.

Several location businesses are getting creative in their thinking process when it comes to bringing the community together in the healthiest way possible, of course. Weather means limited number, social distancing, or just changing small details. The Augusta Elks are joining in on the party and bringing some new fun to Augusta.

According to a Facebook event page made by Augusta Elk #964, they are bringing a new annual holiday event to Central Maine. The Elks Club's Festival of Trees will feature 25-holiday trees decorated in themes up for raffle. The Festival of Tress gets kicked off Monday, December 6th, and will be open from 3 to 8 pm thru Wednesday, December 8th. And again from Friday, December 10th and Saturday, December 11th from 10 am to 5 pm/

Bring the whole family; there will be hot cocoa, Christmas music, raffles, and even an opportunity for a picture with Santa. Admission is $2 per person.

Even though most Elks lodge events are members only, this event is open to the public.
