Louisville Metro Government seeking tree for Light Up Louisville
Monday October 4, 2010
One person’s tree could become a community treasure during this holiday season in Louisville!
The city is seeking the donation of a large tree for its 30th annual Light Up Louisville event, which will be held on Friday, November 26, at Jefferson Square Park, Metro Hall and City Hall in downtown Louisville.
Officials are trying to find a full-sized spruce or fir tree, approximately 50 feet tall. The city will pay for removing the tree and transporting it to downtown Louisville.
“Every year, a generous citizen donates a tree from their property to help us kick off the holiday season in Louisville,” Mayor Jerry Abramson said. “I can’t think of a better way to be part of this family-favorite event than to give the entire community the chance to see your tree in lights.”
The deadline to submit tree suggestions is October 24. Please call 502/425-1020 or e-mail email@example.com.
In addition, the city is encouraging organizations and businesses to participate in the Winter Wonderland Parade, which begins prior to the Light Up ceremony and will be held along Santa Claus Lane (Jefferson Street) in downtown Louisville. For more information on the parade, call 502/456-8110.
