THE CITY transformed yesterday as people braved the rain to dress trees in colourful jumpers, including the Art Gallery Crew which turned out in force to yarn bomb the Town Hall.
Warwick Art Gallery director Karina Devine said people were refusing to let the rain ruin the tradition.
"We started setting up the trees at eight o'clock," she said yesterday.
"The rain got steadily heavier throughout the day.
"Everyone is in high spirits and everyone is helping.
"It's good fun even though it's wet."
Mrs Devine used a cherry- picker to install the yarn bombing display at the Town Hall.
She said she would be lost without the volunteers.
"I can't speak highly enough of our volunteers," she said.
"Candy (a volunteer) is very dedicated and has done the most work on the project.
"She has been working on it since the festival finished last year.
"She's just awesome."
