City Christmas tree arrives in Downtown Evansville
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Downtown Evansville.
Crews installed holiday decorations along Main St. before Thanksgiving -- as did most merchants -- and now the city’s Christmas tree has arrived in front of the Civic Center.
The city of Evansville says the 28-foot-tall Norway spruce was donated by Richard Sanford.
SKANSKA donated a crew and equipment to transport the tree to the Civic Center Monday morning.
It’s being decorated with multi-colored LED lights donated to the city last year by Advance Network & Computer Services.
The Christmas tree is topped with a lighted lower-case “e,” from the city’s “e is for everyone” campaign.
The official tree lighting is set for Wednesday evening at 5:15.
Singers from the Memorial High School Choir will perform starting at 5:00.
