Christmas TreeThe Festival of Trees

The lights and sparkle of uniquely decorated holiday trees captivated shoppers as they strolled through the Holiday Boutique. Donated by individuals, companies and civic groups, each tree was available for sale via silent auction throughout the weekend. The feature was organized by the Minneapolis Fire Department and benefitted Coats for Kids through Operation Warm. 100% of the over $10,000 that was raised will benefit Coat for Kids!
