Volunteers busily decorated 60 trees Tuesday for the 27th annual Festival of Trees held the first week of December at the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center. The annual event benefits children and families at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital and Health Center. Each tree -- uniquely themed and trimmed with holiday presents, trips and other gifts -- will be auctioned off at Friday's gala. The public can view the trees on Saturday and Sunday.
