Picture this: YOUR tree, glowing and decorated in gorgeous holiday lights, surrounded by hundreds of people who have gathered to see it light up downtown Auburn.
The ideal tree will be: located in Auburn; an evergreen - spruce or fir; at least 25 feet tall; and relatively “accessible” (not close to power lines or other obstructions). The “winning” tree will be removed and transported at no cost to the property owner.
Want to see if your tree can “make the cut?” Click HERE and tell us why your tree should be the winner. Entries are due by October 27.
The tree will be illuminated on November 25 to the delight of spectators at the “Twin Cities Festival of Lights Holiday Parade” and officially kicking off the holiday season in beautiful downtown Auburn. If your tree wins, you will be recognized through publicity and social media, and you and your family will be invited to the lighting ceremony. It will remain at Festival Plaza throughout the holiday season.
Residents and property owners who wish to donate a tree are encouraged to submit the tree for consideration as soon as possible and no later than October 27. Thank you in advance for helping us to bring holiday cheer to downtown Auburn!
