Tickets cost $5 for adults and $3 for children. Saturday night’s gala and auction cost $50 per person and will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. It will all take place at 21119 Centre Pointe Parkway, Canyon Country. Some trees have traditional St. Nick and Old World themes. Others reach for a different look with decorations ranging from guitars to treadmills and mountain bikes. In those cases, the trees more represent the designer and the organization presenting them. CANYON COUNTRY – Bugs Bunny, Sylvester and Tweety revel with glad tidings at one tree while whimsical fairies and muses rejoice around another. Holiday scenes are displayed around, on top of and underneath about 68 more Christmas trees at the 2005 Festival of Trees. The trees will be sold at a gala auction Saturday night to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley. Tree price tags range from $500 to $10,000. Last year’s event raised $115,000 for the local organization. Residents can tour the forest of trees, wreaths and gingerbread houses today through Sunday. Santa will be there ready to hear what tops children’s wish lists. Putting the finishing touches Thursday on her beauty-queen theme tree, Jamie Getskow adjusted its crown and the hot-pink boa that wrapped around the branches like garland. Below the tree were spa packages and products from the Valencia beauty salon where she works. “I wanted to trim the tree into a lady but didn’t have enough time,” Getskow said.
