Grants Pass Most Beautiful Christmas Tree Ever!
Come to this year's Annual Holiday Plaza, Grants Pass Christmas Tree Lighting and Holiday Event sponsored by Pacific Living Centers, South Valley Bank and Jimmy's Classic Drive-In!
This year marks the second year of this holiday event with the lighting of a 45+ foot yule tree that is donated by Grants Pass resident George Jones (owner of Grants Pass-based Jones Forest Products, which specializes in harvesting and delivering large fir trees that range in size from 20 to 100 feet tall.)! Many people in this community, especially the businesses of the Towne Center Association, have come together to not only support this community-focused event - but to make it happen!
This year's tree sports nearly 1500 feet of white LED lights. (That's the length of 5 football fields!) LED lights are very eco-friendly (a single 60 foot strand uses only about 3.5 volts) and they are bright and beautiful!
The actual tree lighting ceremony will start at 7:00 pm and the tree will be lit up by Santa, arriving by Fire Engine (barring any Christmas emergencies or local fires!). There will be carolers, children's activities, and a whole lot more!
[After this event Santa will be available for children's visits on a regular schedule at Santa's Workshop, corner of 5th & G Streets - see local postings and this website for more details.]
This year's Holiday Plaza Activities include Caroling, Historical players, Craft area, Gift Wrapping & Hot Cider give away.
Fridays from 3:30-7
Saturdays from 12:30-5pm
