CASPIAN — The 32nd annual Christmas Tree Gallery runs through Sunday at the Iron County Historical Museum in Caspian.

The gallery will be open until 6 p.m. today and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

This year’s event will feature the return of beloved programs such as Family Night and Santa Lucia, as well as new entertainment with a cultural Christmas concert to fit this year’s theme of “Christmas around the world”.

Daily offerings throughout the gallery will include a display of more than 30 trees decorated by local businesses and groups, a gift basket raffle and free treats. Basket raffle tickets can be purchased in person or online. The draw will take place on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Bernhardt Cultural Center of the museum.

Special programs that will be offered this year include a Christmas cultural concert featuring a variety of music from local musicians at 6 p.m. tonight and the Santa Lucia program with Swedish music and sweets at 10 a.m. on Saturday.

The highlight of the event will be a community volunteer recognition ceremony, followed by the basket draw at noon on Sunday. Community members who will be recognized this year are Deborah Davis for her dedication and work at the Iron County Museum; Alisa Nelson for her cultural and creative contributions to Iron County; Dave McCord for his dedication to Iron County youth programs; and Maureen Elson for her efforts in environmental protection and conservation.

A custom bench will also be dedicated to the memory of Larry Mellstrom, who passed away in 2019.
