There's something new to check out at the Mall of America while you get your holiday shopping done. Kare11 News and the Mall of America have teamed up for the "Festival of Trees" on Level 2 of the mall.

This festival is going to feature over 40 trees decorated by different businesses in the mall and organizations in Minnesota:

These are not your typical Christmas trees! Each tree is designed by a different business and reflected so in the ornaments. Throughout the holiday season, all of these unique trees will be showcased, such as a KARE 11 Weather tree, an Olympic tree, a Trolls tree filled with tickets, various Minnesota sports trees, and more!!
