My Town Zeeland: City Christmas tree arrives Nov. 25 | Arts & Culture
ZEELAND, Mich.—While many families are preparing for Thanksgiving, the City of Zeeland will be kicking off the Christmas season this week.
The city Christmas tree will make its grand entrance down Main Street Tuesday, Nov. 25 around 10 a.m. This year’s tree is a Concolor Fir from Dutchman Tree Farm in Manton, Michigan, which is the largest Christmas tree farm in the country. The tree farm previously supplied trees to Ford Field and Universal Studios.
Zeeland’s tree stands over 29 feet tall, which means a team of city workers will be needed to position it on its stand at the center of the city’s new splash pad. The splash pad was actually designed to accommodate the large tree, which will be fully lit with LEDs provided by Holiday Lighting of Zeeland.
Mayor Klynstra will officially light the tree Dec. 1 at 6:15 p.m. Zeeland’s Magical Christmas Parade will immediately follow.
