The City of Findlay Christmas Tree arrived on Monday morning.
The 33-foot-tall blue spruce isn’t as big as last year’s behemoth which was around 45 feet tall and stood as tall as the Municipal Building, if not taller. That was the biggest tree the city ever had.
Due to its smaller size, it didn’t take crews as long this year to maneuver the tree into position and to get it fastened into place in front of the Findlay Municipal Building.
The city thanks Jim and Bonnie Albert for donating the tree and Miller Rigging for help getting the tree to Dorney Plaza and putting it up.
The tree went up a little earlier this year because the Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation donated 300 ornaments that were decorated by the community to adorn the tree, and it will take a little longer to decorate the tree this year.
The tree lighting ceremony will be held the day after Thanksgiving at 6 p.m.
