FLORENCE, Ore. — The 2021 Florence Festival of Trees for the benefit of the Oregon Coast Military Museum is happening soon!

The event will be in-person and a live auction experience.

Beginning November 24th, the public can view all of the Christmas trees at the museum. There are 3 award categories for the trees including most creative, best of the show, and best depiction of theme.

The auction will be held on Friday, December 3rd.

“This year, I believe we’re having about 55 Christmas trees on auction for the night, with the goal of raising $25 – 30,000 dollars. People will drive from Bend and even Portland to decorate trees for this event,” said Oregon Coast Military Museum’s Geoffrey Cannon.
