Grants Pass Tallest Christmas Tree Ever!
Come to this year's Annual Holiday Plaza, Grants Pass Christmas Tree Lighting and Holiday Event - brought to you because of the generosity of Evergreen Federal Bank, AllCare Health, Logan Design, the City of Grants Pass, and the members of the Grants Pass Towne Center Association.
This year marks the seventh year of this holiday event with the lighting of a nearly 40 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 40 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!
The fun begins at 5:30pm and the tree will be lit up around 7:00pm by Santa after he arrives by Fire Engine (barring any Christmas emergencies or local fires!). This year's festivities will include a variety of sing-along Holiday Songs and Christmas carols by the RCC Redwood Chorus and a live reading of " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas". Santa will then be available in the Santa's Workshop for children's visits until about 9:00pm.
[After the opening event Santa visited with the attending children and will be available for children's visits on a regular schedule at the Santa's Workshop in the Holiday Plaza - see local postings and this website for more details.]
It would be impossible to have this event without our sponsors, donors and contributors. The TCA's heartfelt "THANK YOU!" goes to the following for making it happen:
City of Grants Pass
Jones Forest Products
Grants Pass Rentals
Grants Pass Fire Department
Josephine County Library
Southern Oregon Audio Visual
Conrad Digital Design
Mike's Water Truck Services
Plum Creek Timber
Diamond Home Improvement
We encourage you to also thank them in person, on the phone, or by stopping in to visit them!
More of this year's Holiday Plaza Activities include Caroling, Historical players, Craft area, Gift Wrapping & Hot Cider give away - and will be announced later.
