The Hoildays are Upon Use

The annual holiday Christmas tree has arrived to grace the front steps of the state Capitol. The 35-foot tall Eastern Red Cedar was donated from the Bastrop area and delivered to the south sidewalk of the Capitol through a sponsorship by the Austin Downtown Alliance. The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department, Urban Forestry Program performs the installation. The annual tree lighting ceremony and Stroll and Sing-a-long will be held Saturday December 3. Worker Alfredo Gonzales, far right, races over to help his co-workers in raising the tree.
