City of Lenoir staff from several departments put up and decorated the City's 20-foot-tall, 1,000-light, supersize Christmas tree Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2020.
Public Works delivered and placed the tree on the southwest corner of the square in front of City Hall. Police Department officers helped direct traffic during the installation. Public Works, Police, and Main Street staff and volunteers strung the lights and hung all of the ornaments.
The Christmas tree is part of the City's "Hope Shines Brightly" series which also includes the Holiday Light Show at the stage and the Luminary Display at Blue Ridge Memorial Park. The Christmas tree lights will be turned on Friday night, Nov. 20, and the Holiday Light Show will start that evening as well. The Luminary Display at Blue Ridge Memorial Park will be Friday Dec. 11 at 6:00 p.m. with a rain date of Friday, Dec. 18.
Carl White, TV Show Host and Producer, also stopped by Wednesday to do a piece about the Christmas tree for Life in the Carolinas. Be on the lookout for the show on local television stations.
