Detroit’s Christmas tree arrives in downtown

It may be 65 degrees and sunny, but Christmastime is here.

A 65-foot-tall, Michigan-grown Christmas tree arrived Thursday and is now standing in the middle of Campus Martius, ready to ring in the holiday season.

“I’m thrilled that we’re all going to celebrate together on Nov. 18, and we have quite the show in store,” said David Cowan, chief public spaces officer for the Downtown Detroit Partnership. “So without further delay, I’m very proud to unveil this year’s majestic 65-foot Norway Spruce from Lake City, Michigan … which is best coined the Christmas tree capital of the world.”

The tree is barren right now, but it will be vibrantly lit up with 20,000 LED lights.
