A Somerset family’s creation will be among the dozens of trees at the 36th annual “Festival of Trees” at the Environmental Education Center, 190 Lord Stirling Rd., Basking Ridge.

The Lyons’ family’s tree is entitled, “Peace and Goodwill.”

Presented by the Somerset County Parks Commission Environmental Education Center’s naturalists, the display will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 6-29, except for Dec. 24 and Dec. 25.

The trees in the display were designed and created by local groups, businesses and individuals who select the theme and decorate with their own personal artistic ability, according to a press release on the event.
