WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — It’s a Port City Christmas tradition is making its way back to town

The Cape Fear Festival of Trees is back and better than ever this holiday season. The longtime event ended three years ago, but returns in conjunction with the Nutcracker ballet.

Organizer Elizabeth Hester says she’s excited about reinventing the event that benefits the Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCare Center.

“It’ll include beautiful trees, exhibits by Cape Fear Model Railroad Society, Ducks Unlimited, there’ll be a kids village, including Santa and make your own from Home Depot, from Cameron Art Museum, from the Cape Fear Museum, so kids will have their own whole room,” Hester said. “There’s all these giant structures that come from the Nutcracker that create beautiful holiday scenes.”

The Festival of Trees runs December 3 and 4 at the Minnie Evans Art Center at Ashley High School.
