Last week I attended the FEZtival of Treez in Lewiston.  It was the first time I attended and I can tell you I will be going every year!  There were around 60 trees all decorated and with presents.  You could buy raffle tickets for the trees and at the end of the Feztival they will draw names and the winner of each tree also recieves all the presents in that tree display. Below are a coupe of pictures of the trees:
