The 8th Festival of Trees and Dramatic Reading of Dylan Thomas’ “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” will take place Dec. 5-9 at All Saints Anglican Church Hall, at the corner of 2nd Ave. and James St. in Mission.

The festival is returning after a three year absence.

This is an opportunity to decorate a ‘themed’ tree (no live trees, please) and have it on display at the festival. Organizations, businesses, groups, churches, families, and individuals are invited to register and decorate a tree at the Festival.

“If you need a decorator, we can provide one. You provide the trees and decorations,” said organizers.

“Help us reach our goal of 35-plus decorated trees this year.”

All decorated trees are given to the Christmas Bureau and will be distributed to families and Seniors in Mission. As well, all donated non-perishable food items, gifts, and cash are given to the Christmas Bureau.

Doors are open from 3 to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday. The dramatic reading takes place on Saturday evening at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.).

Early Bird registration is $20, after November 17, it is $25. Registration forms and information are available from Joy Cox or Margaret Peake at, Simone Redburn at, or from the Church Office, Wednesday and Friday between 10 a.m. to noon.
