After-hours mixer brings fairy tale opening to annual Festival of Trees in Craig
CRAIG — Storybooks have come to life in Craig at the seventh annual Festival of Trees, hosted by Moffat County Youth United Way and Moffat County High School Key Club at the Moffat County Courthouse.
The theme for this year’s holiday extravaganza is “Once Upon a Time … Christmas Stories” and the event features the work of numerous Northwest Colorado organizations and nonprofits, which provided creatively decorated trees.
Event sponsors and the Craig Chamber of Commerce held an after-hours mixer Thursday, Dec. 6, complete with soup, cocoa, and wine bars. The courthouse will be open Saturday to allow visitors to enjoy the trees the same day as the fifth annual Down Home Christmas Celebration in Alice Pleasant Park.
After Saturday, the trees will be on display during business hours through January at the courthouse.
With players finding themselves in new parts of the field Saturday afternoon, the Moffat County High School soccer team had more than a few difficulties against its latest opponents, though if there was one takeaway for their coach it was the benefit of Bulldogs getting new perspectives.
