The Cloverdale Christmas Tree Festival is back at the Museum of Surrey.

Local businesses have decorated dozens of trees and the museum wants visitors to vote for the best one. Museum-goers will be entered to win a hundred-dollar gift card after they cast their ballot.

The Christmas tree festival began Nov. 26 with a kick-off event that ran from 1 to 4 p.m. at the museum.

The museum billed the Nov. 26 afternoon event as “family friendly” and said it “celebrates the start of the Cloverdale Christmas Tree Festival.”

The museum also had Christmas-themed craft stations and Christmas-themed activities set up Nov. 26 and Santa Claus even came down to the museum for a visit.

“Each year staff and volunteers have a wonderful time partnering with businesses and organizations from the Cloverdale community to bring the season’s cheer to visitors,” Lynn Saffery, museum manager, said about the yearly Christmas Tree decorating contest.

The Museum of Surrey has partnered with the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce to host the three-week Christmas Tree Festival.

The festival also has a charity component and Saffery said the museum is encouraging visitors to bring a new toy and/or a non-perishable food item when they come down to see the trees. All donations will go to support the Cloverdale Christmas Hamper program and bins will be set up in the main lobby and in the reception area.

The Cloverdale Christmas Tree Festival runs until December 18.

The Museum of Surrey is located at 17710 56A Avenue in Cloverdale.
