Fargo Park District Prepping the Downtown Christmas Tree
The tree was donated by a family in South Fargo
FARGO, ND — The Fargo Park District put up their annual Christmas tree at the Depot downtown.
Forestry crew workers say the wind proved to be a little bit of a challenge in mounting the tree, but a 25-foot crane helped them set it up in time.
The tree was donated by a family in South Fargo.
It will stay up through the New Year, and then be turned into board lumber.
“It’s an exciting time of year. We know that it brings that joy to the town and the Park District does do a lot of the lighting, especially in the downtown area and at Rheault Farms,” said Park Forester, Sam Demarais. “We know it’s kind of that turning of the clock and letting everybody know that the holidays are here.”
The downtown Christmas tree will be lit up before the Holiday Lights Parade on November 21.
