The First Annual Trail of Trees event at the Badlands Community Facility was a huge success on Friday December 2.
"Charlotte (Stokes) did a fantastic job with local organizations and businesses to come in and join Santa and other businesses with setting up trees themed to their business or organization. Totally fantastic! We had a couple hundred people at the facility who have about 16-17 trees now," stated Erica Crocker, Booking & Customer Service Specialist for the BCF.
A new addition to the facility was the giant Christmas hat for their dinosaur.
"We got him a custom made Santa Hat from Spoolz Quilt shop here in town. They made us a giant novelty Santa hat to stick on top of our dinosaur on the second level at the facility and he is definitely feeling the Christmas sprit. He has been pretty good this year so Santa might visit him," Crocker explained. 
"A few hundred people coming in and out of the building and then of course the next couple days there has been more and more people kind walking through with their friends and family to show off their tree and at least feel the Christmas sprit when they walk in the Badlands Community Facility," Crocker added. 
The Badlands Community Facility is looking forward to hosting the annual event next year in 2017.
