U.S. Capitol Christmas tree to stop in Grand Rapids next week
The Christmas tree that will eventually stand in front of the U. S. Capitol will stop in Grand Rapids next week as it will be moved from Minnesota to Washington, D. C., officials with Downtown Grand Rapids confirmed.
On November 13, residents of West Michigan will get a chance to write their messages on special stickers that will be attached to a banner that will move with the Christmas tree to the national capitol.
Kristopher Larson, President and chief executive of Downtown Grand Rapids Inc., said they were very excited to provide residents with an opportunity to have a voice at the national level.
Speaking on the topic, Larson added, "Our hope is to see the Capitol Tree Banner covered in words of hope, love, and reflection from Grand Rapids. Our team has designed a special 'Mitten State' element that will be recognized nationwide as the tree is brought to D. C."
An event will take place from 1 p. m. to 2:30 p. m. on November 13 at the Gerald Ford Museum, 303 Pearl St. NW, in Grand Rapids; while another event is scheduled to take place from 10 a. m. to 3 p. m. on November 15 at the Henry Ford Museum, 20900 Oakwood Blvd., in Dearborn.
The tree, which was cut down in Minn.'s Chippewa National Forest on October 29, will also make its way to the Michigan State University Auditorium on November 14.
The 88-foot white spruce Christmas tree and the special banner will be televised in its approach, installation and lighting in national capitol on December 2.
