Early Tuesday morning while the sun rose over Aliso Viejo, a spectacular 23-foot tree arrived at Town Center. The tree is part of a City of Aliso Viejo effort to capture the spirit of the holidays.
The tree was grown in Butte Falls, a tiny town in Jackson County, Oregon. It is one of the longest-lasting trees and is grown specifically to be used as a Christmas tree. This year it will be installed above the center’s fountain just in time for the Aliso Viejo Community Association’s Winter Holiday event this Sunday, December 4.
The Winter Holiday event is from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Grand Park/Town Center Amphitheater and includes holiday entertainment, a tree lighting ceremony and free hot chocolate and cookies. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be on hand for photos.
The City’s holiday tree will be lit this weekend and will be part of AVCA’s annual event. The tree will remain in the plaza area throughout the holidays for businesses, residents and visitors to enjoy.
