Bedford Festival of Trees Set Up at Welcome Center

Posted: Updated:

Businesses around Bedford County bring Christmas early to the Bedford Welcome Center.

This is the fifth year for the Festival of Trees. Employees of local businesses and organizations decorated all 27 trees.

Starting this Wednesday, people can pay $1 to vote for their favorite tree. The proceeds will go to the charities of the winner's choice.

"We run a theme and we hope everyone runs with it," says Judy Jackson, who is on the committee for Festival of Trees. "This year it's 'Santa Claus is coming to town,' since Bedford reverted from a city to a town this year."
