U.S. Capitol Tree Tour: “The PEOPLE’S Tree” – Vallejo Stop
COME SEE THE 84 FT TREE THAT WILL BE TRAVELING ACROSS THE COUNTRY!
MINI PARADE – WALK-THROUGH “FOREST” – CAL MARITIME CADETS – SANTA + SPECIAL GUESTS – BEER GARDEN – DIY ORNAMENTS – LATIN DANCERS – LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL BAND – SIX FLAGS COAT DRIVE – AND MORE!
The tradition started in 1970 where every year a select tree is chosen from one of the US National Forests to be erected as the US Capitol’s Christmas tree. This year, the tree is coming from Six Rivers National Forest on the North Coast of California and touring across the US before it reaches Washington DC.
The hand-selected White Fir tree is named “Sugar Bear” and you can read about the Forest Service forester who found it here.
A Plus is hosting one of the stops along the way at the Vallejo Ferry Terminal in Vallejo, CA.
The tree will make a lively entrance, escorted by Vallejo PD and a mini-parade with the CAL Maritime Cadets, Latin Dancers, Mad Hatter Characters, the High School Percussion band, our A Plus fleet, and more!
