Festival of Trees is Nov. 23-24

The 10th annual Festival of Trees and Wesley Village Craft Fair will be Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 23 and 24, from 10-3 p.m. at Wesley Village in Shelton at 580 Long Hill Ave.

The event benefits volunteer caregivers at TEAM and activity programs for seniors at Wesley Village.

The two days include activities and fun for the whole family, including the viewing of decorated themed trees and wreaths donated by area businesses, organizations and individuals.

Participants may buy raffle tickets for the chance to win any of the donated trees. All drawings will be held on Sunday at 3:15 p.m. Winners do not need to be present.

The event also features a holiday craft fair, with more than 50 vendors offering a variety of gifts and handmade crafts. A local photographer will be taking photos with Santa from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. both days.

Throughout the day, there will be a holiday bake sale as well as refreshments available in the Crosby Commons Café.
