TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The weather is cooling down and that’s a good indication we're closing in on the holidays.

WTXL'sJada Williams was live Friday morning to tell how one organization is helping everyone get a jumpstart on decorating for the holiday season.

Friday and Saturday the Big Bend Habitat for Humanity is hosting their annual Festival of the Trees.

The festival is a fundraiser for the Big Bend Habitat for Humanity.

Goodwood Museum will be packed with artificial trees and wreaths all up for sale.

And all of the proceeds from the fundraiser go toward the organization's mission of building affordable homes for residents of Leon and Gadsden counties.

Things kick off Friday at 6 p.m. and run until 8 p.m. with a preview party that includes food, drinks and live music.

The fun at Goodwood continues into Saturday with family fun events including an early visit from Santa. He'll be around from 10 until 12. The festival ends at 5 p.m.

There's a lot of fancy one of a kind trees being offered.

Habit for Humanity receives the trees as donations from creative minds in our community.

Habit for Humanity even has a team that inspects the trees and wreaths for safety before putting them out on the floor for sale.
