Festival of Trees comes to an end

ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -

The Festival of Trees put a bow on their weekend festivities, wrapping up what has been a tremendous weekend.

Today's festivities included plenty of picture taking, gift buying and live dancing entertainment.

Event coordinators say they've seen record numbers all weekend, including around 500 more visitors for kids day than last year.

The money raised goes to help Hiawatha Homes to provide support services to people with disabilities.

"It has been amazing, we have been up in attendance, I think it's record breaking attendance actually. Everybody is loving what they see, their spirits are high, they're festive, they're taking Christmas pictures for their cards, they're meeting families, they're enriching traditions. It's just been beautiful," said Development and Communications Director for Hiawatha Homes, Teresa Thompson.

Hiawatha Homes says it's too early to know how much they raised, but that they will find out at the end of January.
