A 'Badger Tree' sponsored by the Desh and Herbst families is part of the Door County Maritime Museum's Merry-Time Festival of Trees.
The Door County Maritime Museum kicked off its Merry-Time Festival of Trees with a "Tree Tales" story time for children Saturday morning.
The festival features 32 artificial holiday trees that have been decorated by local organizations and businesses, and will be raffled Dec. 10 at the conclusion of the tree festival. Most of the tree sponsors combine additional gifts with its tree bids.
A silent auction boasting local artists' works is also on display and will also commence Dec. 10 with "Jingle, Jingle, Mix & Mingle," a social event disclosing the raffle and auction bid winners.
Visitors can view the trees during regular admission hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily (except Thanksgiving) at 120 N. Madison Ave., Sturgeon Bay.
