The annual “Festival of Trees” in The Center at Colfax Library runs through the month of December.

The trees are wide ranging in theme including: LEGOs, Sportsman’s Challenge, Alice in Wonderland, Cactus Christmas, and more. Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite entries including one category especially for kids’ choice. Colfax Chamber of Commerce will present prizes in 4 categories.
