Colorado’s Largest Christmas Tree

November 16, 2010 at 4:14 pm Leave a comment

The Holidays are about traditions. One of my favorite traditions is the Tree Lighting event at Outlets at Castle Rock. This year promises to be the best event yet (and my family can’t wait). Outlets at Castle Rock will be home to Colorado’s largest Christmas tree, a freshly harvested 70-foot, 7,000-pound White Fir that arrived on a 50-foot flatbed trailer from the Oregon/California Shasta Trinity Forest.

A crew of four spends seven full days shaping the tree, plugging it with 500 live fir branches, coating it with 70 gallons of fire-retardant and decorating it with more than 4,500 lights, 3,000 ornaments and bows for its magnificent lighting celebration on Friday, November 19, at the Outlets at Castle Rock.  The annual tree lighting event, hosted by the Outlets of Colorado at its Front Range center at Castle Rock, will feature seasonal entertainment, live music with the Kory Brunson country rock band, exclusive shopping discounts– and of course, a visit from Old Saint Nick.

When talking with my friends at the Outlets at Castle Rock they were proud to share with me that although the 70-foot tree is extravagant and intended for thousands to admire and enjoy during its time in Colorado, ten (10) White Fir trees are planted in the Shasta Trinity Forest on the California/Oregon border to replenish the harvesting of this tree, which is characterized as Colorado’s largest holiday tree.  After the Christmas and New Year holidays, the tree is recycled and its materials are used for erosion control and other ecological purposes and projects.

You, your family and friends are invited to attend Outlets at Castle Rock’s Tree Lighting event and free concert. It promises to be enlightening (I just couldn’t resist).

See you Friday Night!
