FESTIVAL OF TREES
The annual Festival of Trees is the primary fundraising event for O'Connell Children’s Shelter. Held at Liberty Hall, it has been a premier Lawrence holiday event for over 30 years. Families, businesses and clubs donate themed Christmas trees and holiday wreaths displayed for the community to enjoy throughout the week.
