A favorite holiday tradition in Colorado Springs resumes Saturday evening with the lighting of the 'Trees of Life' on the grounds of the historic Pioneers Museum downtown. The ceremony, hosted by Pikes Peak Hospice and Palliative Care, brings hundreds downtown to honor loved ones lost in the past year and to pay tribute to the military and emergency first-responders with trees decked in thousands of red, white, and blue holiday lights. Saturday's event runs from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Pioneers Museum, with free parking available at the Plaza of the Rockies next door.
