Festival of Trees drive-thru display kicks off Friday

Dyer Library and Saco Museum will kick off its 16th annual Festival of Trees celebration this Friday, featuring an outdoor display that can be viewed from 4 to 10 p.m. nightly through Dec. 30 at 371 Main St.

This year’s theme, “A Season of Gratitude,” will feature decorated trees at both the Dyer Library and Saco Museum sides of the parking lot to create a “drive-thru” style holiday experience.

Enter the parking lot from Main Street and exit onto Middle Street when doing the drive-thru. Admission is free

There will be a photo booth area for those last-minute holiday cards. Please respect each others’ space in this area.
