The Stroll Through the Forest tree viewing runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

The Sugar Plum Ball is set for 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday; tickets are $30.

A luncheon and fashion show will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday; tickets are $40. The “Festival After Dark” event starts at 6 p.m. Friday; tickets are $25. Santa will eat breakfast with the kids from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Saturday; tickets are $15.

“Tux ’n Trees” concludes the festival at 6 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $150.
