LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- Louisville Metro is looking for someone to donate a tall spruce or fur to serve as the large Christmas tree that will stand in Jefferson Square Park through the holidays.
“It is always the main attraction of our Light Up celebration,” said Mayor Greg Fischer. “We hope someone will come forward with just the right tree.” The tree should be about 40 feet tall and well-shaped.
The city will cut and transport the tree to its prominent spot in Jefferson Square Park. Anyone interested in donating a tree should call MetroCall 311. The tree donor will attend the Light Up Louisville sponsor reception and be a featured guest of Mayor Fischer for the Light Up celebration.
Light Up Louisville is held annually on the day after Thanksgiving. This year, the event, in its 37th year, will be held on Friday, Nov. 24. The tree will be moved with the support of Bob Ray Company and LG&E.
