Christmas Tree Arrives in Grants Pass

gp xmas 2013GRANTS PASS, Ore. — It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in downtown Grants Pass.

Monday morning, the town center association put up this 40 foot tall white fir Christmas tree in what will soon be the holiday plaza, at 5th and G Streets.

The donated tree will soon be decorated, and will be the focus of several other attractions when the tree lighting happens December 6th.

“It’ll just be bright and beautiful. And on December sixth we have our annual, um, tree lighting and Santa’s arrival. And then the next day we have our Christmas parade,” said Town Center Association President Jeff Voigt.

The familiar nutcracker statues are all in place, and while the crane was in town putting up the tree, it was also used to place nativity figures on top of the building at 6th and G Streets.

The tree lighting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on December 6th.
