As snow fell in Winnipeg on Friday, the City of Winnipeg announced it has selected a Christmas tree for City Hall.
The 45-foot Colorado blue spruce was donated by Windsor Park resident Dean Munoz-Perez.
“As a new resident in Windsor Park, I have a beautiful tree that is too big for my yard,” Munoz-Perez said. “I’m happy to donate this tree so all Winnipeggers, including myself, can enjoy it this holiday season!”
The tree will be cut down on Sunday, November 4 and transported to 510 Main Street, where a crew from the city’s Urban Forestry Branch will decorate it with more than 9,000 multi-coloured LED lights over several days. The ceremonial lighting of the tree will take place at a public event later in November.
The City Hall Christmas tree has been selected and will arrive at City Hall on Nov 4. City crews are also busy getting ready for the holidays. Here's a sneak peek at what goes on behind the scenes to get hundreds of festive lights ready to shine. Info: https://t.co/7DknHQYUVx pic.twitter.com/NkjNIadjLT
