WATERVILLE, Maine (WABI) - The annual Sukeforth Family Festival of Trees is underway in Waterville.

They have about 70 trees that you can enter tickets to win, with some trees having total prizes worth over $3,000.

All of the proceeds benefit three local charities.

Last year they raised over $200,000.

"It gets people into the Christmas spirit," says Annette Marin, Chairperson of the Sukeforth Family Festival of Trees. "You come in, you visit, you see people you haven't seen in years, so it's really fun to run into different people you haven't seen. And it's a good cause."

They have a new location this year, 21 College Ave in Waterville right next to the Post Office.

They're open Saturday from 10:00am to 8:00pm and Sunday from 10:00am to 4:00pm.
