The Arc/Rowan’s third annual Festival of Trees continues today from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the F & amp;M Trolley Barn, 127 E. Liberty St.

The main annual fundraiser for the organization, the festival features 43 trees decorated in a variety of themes. Visitors can vote on which tree they like the best and enter raffles to win a handmade stained glass tree, handmade quilt and gift baskets, and even a tree decorated by Charlotte Gardner, whose tree was voted favorite by those attending last year’s festival.

The festival includes musical entertainment. Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for children 3-12, and free for children ages 2 and younger.
