The St. Alphonsus Festival of Trees began in 1984. Back then, it was a display of just 14 trees in a local warehouse. Now, it's grown into 80 trees, and a week of incredible holiday events!

If you are looking for something fun to do with family and friends this week, The Boise Centre on the Grove is the place to be. You can get a glimpse of dozens of magically decorated trees, wreaths and other holiday decor items. If you want to get into the holiday spirit, this is the way to do it!


 

Throughout the Festival, your kids enjoy all sorts of activities - Breakfast with Santa, Pictures with Santa, Craft Corner for Kids, the Art Contest and a even a Scavenger Hunt. Don't forget, Saturday is KTVB FAMILY DAY - if you bring a new unwrapped toy for kids in need - you get a dollar off your admission price!

There will also be LIVE holiday entertainment. Here's a Festival event planner, so you can decide when to go with your family:
