The holidays are right around the corner and there are many community events that are scheduled to kick off the season. One of the biggest festivities that is held each year, is The Festival Of Trees which is held at the Muskingum County Welcome Center.

The festival will kick off on Wednesday November 28th at 5 pm. The festival auction will be held on November 30th. Proceeds from the auction go towards economic development programs in our area.
