The trees and wreaths have been auctioned off but people in KTOA Territory still had a chance to deck the halls at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center.
 
The 2012 Annual Festival of Trees wrapped up Saturday.

It is the 15th year that Behavior Management Systems has hosted the celebration.

Organizers say more than 500 people showed up for Friday's auction.

The large crowd could admire all of the beautifully decorated trees and wreaths, before they're shipped to their new owners.

"Our highest selling vignette went for $3,100 dollars, so we were thrilled, and we had two wreaths and one tree pre sold," says Debbie Siemonsma, Marketing Director for BMS.
 
Also adding to the fun, the annual north pole area, brought hundreds of kids to the event.
 
"I like getting presents and seeing family," says Talia Siemonsma.

The event is Behavior Management's largest fundraiser and it is also a Care and Share food drive event, more than 2,000 pounds of food was donated.
