There will be 12 decorated trees and a Father Christmas sculpture in the mezzanine of the Historic Davenport Hotel. Sales for the Davenport trees and Father Christmas will end at 9 p.m. on Dec. 8, with the drawing for winners to follow.

The other 6 trees will line the second floor at River Park Square. The sales for those trees will end on Dec. 9 at 4 p.m.
