This year’s Chamber of Commerce Festival of Trees fundraiser in Zanesville will have a distinctly local theme.

Zanesville Muskingum Chamber of Commerce Vice President Kelly Ashby said Ohio Magazine has selected Zanesville as one of Ohio’s best hometowns. So hometown pride is going to be the theme of this year’s Festival of Trees event.

"We are just encouraging businesses to take that theme and run with it. Whether they decorate a tree or a wreath or add an incentive that pays tribute to a local celebrity, pays tribute to a local attraction or pays tribute for a business that has been located here for many years." Ashby said.

"It’s truly an honor for us and we have so many wonderful attractions and businesses that we thought this hometown pride would be a great theme for our annual festival of trees," Ashby said.

This has been a long tradition for the community. All the proceeds go back into the Chamber of Commerce. For more information and how to enter go to http://zmchamber.com.
