Capitol Christmas tree on display in Colville, WA
- dsashin, CNN iReport producer
As usual, they chose a giant tree and from the looks of the tractor trailer they are transporting it in, I'm talking huge. I could only see the top of the tree through the windows in the back of the trailer. People were standing in line to get a peek at the tree and the ornaments made by local school kids that adorns it.
A local elementary school student from Colville won the chance to flip the lights on the tree when it is unveiled in the Capitol.
I also got some video of the display with Christmas carols, Santa Claus, Smokey the Bear and a very festive atmosphere. That we had our first snow fall of the season this morning makes the day all that more magical.
If there is interest, I may post that later.
I know I've been a little MIA lately. I thought this was a good opportunity to share some local excitement from my neck of the woods.
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy.
