A forest of holiday spirit will sprout up over Thanksgiving week at the Boise Centre for the annual Saint Alphonsus Festival of Trees. Ballrooms brim with beautifully decorated trees, wreaths and centerpieces. Plus you can visit with Santa and have fun with the “Fables and Fantasies” storybook characters, balloon animals from Balloonies and more. This year, the event raises funds for the renovation of Saint Al’s Rehabilitation Center.
