It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in downtown Rochester! Santa and Mrs. Claus will be visiting for the annual "Here Comes Santa" event. Learn more about that fun celebration and other events and attractions in our area on our Holiday Guide. 

One of the most popular holiday events each year is the Festival of Trees. The annual holiday event is a fundraiser for Hiawatha Homes which helps individuals with disabilities in our community and the trees are now lit up and on display.

Typically the event is held inside the Mayo Civic Center, but the Festival of Trees is once again spread throughout the downtown area to keep everyone safe and healthy.
