The yearly tradition in Riverside that lets the community know it's time to put up the Christmas trees is back.
The Riverside County Regional Medical Center Foundation's Festival of Trees will run Nov. 24-28 at the Riverside Convention Center.
Fifty trees will be designed and decorated for everyone to see. Among other trees on display will be a 12-foot military tribute tree and, in the Elves Forest, trees decorated by children at 35 schools.
There also will be special events like a story time with Santa from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday and a scavenger hunt during Family Day on Nov. 27.
The Festival of Trees raises funds for the medical center's children's units.
The Festival of Trees is closed Thursday for the Thanksgiving holiday.
