Oak Park resident Heather Ethier and her children, Eloise, 2, and Benjamin, 4, said Triton College gets them into the holiday spirit.

"Both of my kids attend the child development center," she said. "When we get to see the trees lit up, it's a very fun atmosphere."

Ethier was among those who attended the Deck the Mounds Festival of Trees at Triton College.

The event was held Nov. 30 on the campus mounds. Different schools and organizations sponsored 40 trees, according to public relations coordinator Stephen Butera.

"The trees are beautifully lit and decorated along our mounds," he said. "We wanted to spread holiday cheer."
