Alabama state Christmas tree lighting ceremony set for Dec. 1

Governor Kay Ivey will light the State’s official Christmas tree during a special ceremony Friday, Dec. 1 on the front steps of the State Capitol.

The event officially begins at 5:30 p.m., but Christmas music will be performed by 151st Army Band of the Alabama National Guard and by Will and Janet McFarlane, a husband and wife singing and songwriting duo from Muscle Shoals, Ala. at 5:00 p.m.

This year’s tree is a 35-foot Eastern red cedar grown in Bullock County that was donated by Ray Allen owner of Feather’s Properties. It will be adorned with more than 35,000 LED lights and 67 stars representing each of Alabama’s counties.
