A traveling tree will be the featured attraction at Duluth’s Bayfront Festival Park today.
An 88-foot white spruce, removed last week from the Chippewa National Forest, is en route to Washington, D.C., where it will be this year’s U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree.
The tree will make 30 stops for community celebrations along the way. The free event in Duluth will be from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and include children’s games and activities, the opportunity to create keepsake ornaments, an ice-
fishing igloo, marshmallow roasting and hot chocolate, according to information from Visit Duluth.
Visitors also can exchange two canned goods or a new unwrapped toy for a ticket good for an “inside tour” of the 128-foot-tall Bentleyville tree. The donations will launch this year’s Salvation Army
kettle campaign.
