Festival ornaments

An oversized ornament for the opening ceremony at 5 p.m. Wednesday for the 32nd annual Festival of Trees this coming weekend is put in place on Sunday at the Vern Burton Community Center in Port Angeles, with volunteer Ricki Smith in the bucket, Matt Williams working inside the 14-foot-tall ornament and Laci Williams watching. Four of the huge round ornaments, a 20-foot-tall tree and two fountains donated by Microsoft to the Olympic Medical Center Foundation, will be lit up outside the community center during a free 20-minute ceremony that also will include performances by the Port Angeles Symphony, Ballet Workshop and Ghostlight Productions. A limited number of tickets, which will provide seats under cover outside and a sneak preview of the trees to be auctioned off on Friday, are available for $20 by going to omcf.org.
