The Mayor’s Christmas Tree at Crown Center is receiving national attention this season, as one of the finest public holiday trees in the land.
“Christmas trees draw communities and travelers together,” Tim O’Connor, executive director of the National Christmas Tree Association, told USA Today. Towering and elaborately decorated public trees allow visitors to join in local holiday traditions and gatherings. “They really symbolize Christmas so well, and attract tens of thousands of people.”
He shares some favorites with USA Today, including the Mayor’s Christmas Tree in Kansas City:
“One of the nation’s largest Christmas trees shines above Kansas City every holiday season,” USA Today reported. “A 100-foot Oregon Douglas fir lords over the city’s Crown Center, which welcomes Christmas with an ice-skating rink, a gingerbread village and holiday train. At the end of each season, wood from the tree is made into ornaments. Proceeds from sales benefit a holiday charity fund for needy city residents.”
More media kudos for the Crown Center beauty have been reported at least three more national media outlets, including:
- CountryLiving.com (11.5 million UVM) – “The Most Iconic Christmas Tree in Every State”
- Yahoo.com (10 million UVM) – Syndication of Country Living’s “The Most Iconic Christmas Tree in Every State”
- BellaNYC.com (14.9 million UVM) – “Spread the Festive Cheer by Visiting These Must-See Spectacular Christmas Trees”
The Mayor’s Christmas Tree at Crown Center will be on public view through year-end. And, it is a sight to behold.
