Decorators beautify their trees Tuesday afternoon in preparation for the 30th annual Festival of Trees at the Helena Civic Center. All proceeds from the four-day event benefit the children and families served by Intermountain’s residential and community-based services in the Helena area, Flathead area and across the state. Public events get started with the Evening in the Trees on Thursday from 7-9 p.m. The silent auction will continue throughout the weekend, and the Family Days entertainment will be held Saturday and Sunday. The Jingle Bell Jam Dance, for those 21 and older, will be held on Saturday, featuring the music of The Clintons.
