Murphysboro Festival of Trees held this Friday

MURPHYSBORO — Spero Family Services will host its first Murphysboro Festival of Trees at the Murphysboro Event Center this Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This event features Christmas trees that have been beautifully decorated and donated by local individuals, surrounding businesses and school classrooms. They will all be displayed throughout the entire event.

This is a free public event. However, trees will be available for purchase through a silent auction. The highest bidder for each tree will be selected at the end of the festival.

All proceeds raised from this event will benefit the mission-based programs at Spero and the youth and families it serves.
