Soon it will begin to look a lot like Christmas with the largest Christmas Tree Ever to be Featured in Plaza
This year Sundance Square will ring in the holidays with a 65-foot concolor fir Christmas tree from Big Rapids, Michigan.
This tree, the largest yet to be featured in the plaza, will be erected in the center of plaza on Monday, Nov. 13 at 9:30 a.m. marking the beginning of the holiday season.
A team of Sundance Square Elves will spend the remainder of the week decorating the tree. Additionally, nearly 10,000 Christmas tree LED lights, the most ever used, will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy from Green Mountain Energy Company.
The official tree lighting ceremony takes place on Saturday, Nov. 18 with festivities beginning at 5:30 p.m. Events include a countdown to the tree lighting, live music from the Inspiration Band, a visit with Santa Claus, as well as numerous photo opportunities throughout the plaza.
Sundance Square is expecting approximately one million visitors during the holiday season beginning with the tree lighting and continuing through New Year’s Day. After the holidays, the tree will be recycled and used for a Habitat for Humanity house to be built next spring.
