TOPEKA, Kansas (WIBW) -- A Christmas tradition in Topeka continued throughout the weekend, not only to spread holiday cheer, but to raise money for Topeka's disabled.

Many lined up to see the dozens of uniquely decorated Christmas trees and wreaths at the Kansas Expocentre's Agriculture Hall for the 36th annual Festival of Trees.

Local businesses, organizations and designers created the trees and wreaths with different themes, and different ribbons were handed out including Governor's Favorite, Mayor's Favorite, Best Sports Theme, Creative Genius and Judge's Favorite, among others.

The festival is a fund raiser for Sheltered Living, Inc., a local non-profit that provides services and support to more than 250 kids and adults with intellectual disabilities living in Topeka.

The Festival of Trees runs through Sunday, December 8.

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for seniors and kids 12 and under are free.
