SANDY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Each year in a 24-hour period, an empty exhibit hall transforms into a holiday winter wonderland of uniquely decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, playhouses, centerpieces, quilts, and gingerbread houses, all for the Festival of Trees.

Funds raised at the Festival of Trees are “A Gift of Love” to children at Primary Children’s Hospital. The festival runs four days, December 4th – 6th at the Mountain America Expo Center.

The spirit of this holiday tradition continues all year long in the hearts of those who volunteer and also in the lives of the children who are cared for at Primary Children’s Hospital.
