There will be plenty of activities for kids at the annual Mission event.

All children are invited to take part in the activities at the fifth annual Festival of Trees, taking place Dec. 5-9 at All Saints Anglican Church Hall, 33077 Second Ave.

Children’s programs will be offered each weekday from 3 to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. under the leadership of Samantha Green and her helpers.

There will be Christmas crafts, making decorations for the children’s tree, and snacks, all happening amongst the decorated trees, lights, and music.

There will also be special story times with Elspeth Bowers on Tuesday and Thursday during the children’s program.

Santa and his helpers will be in his grotto amongst the trees ready to great children of all ages on Thursday and Friday from 3 to 5 p.m., and on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. Come and bring the whole family with you and have a photograph taken with Santa.

While the children are enjoying their activities, family members and caregivers can relax and enjoy the decorated trees, and entertainment, and have some refreshments.
