The Kora Shriners annual FEZtival of Trees at the Kora Temple in Lewiston was not crowded Friday afternoon as it opened to in-person visitors this year after going online-only last year due to COVID-19. To attend this year, tickets must be purchased online at korashriners.org/feztival. Because of the 100 person limit in the facility, Shriners are scheduling blocks of one hour visits. The festival runs until Saturday, Nov. 27. Russ Dillingham/Sun Journal
