Community Action Southold Town (CAST) hosted the inaugural North Fork Festival of Trees on Dec. 5 and 6 at Treiber Farms in Peconic.
The hybrid virtual and live event displayed themed trees decorated by local businesses, artists, and friends of CAST. The best trees were given People’s Choice and Designer’s Choice awards.
The holiday trees and other items, including art from local artists, were auctioned off to benefit CAST. The event also collected new unwrapped toys for the annual
CAST Holiday Toy Drive benefiting North Fork families in need.
Guests meandered through CAST’s magical tree garden while enjoying holiday music and refreshments for sale.
