Celebrating our 8th Season of Christmas at the Capitol
The magic of the holiday season can be enjoyed all over Music City but, one special Christmas tree always promises to shine the brightest — the Capitol Christmas tree in downtown Nashville!
Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville would like to invite you to witness this the magic of the Christmas tree at the TN State Capitol. This is our 8th season lighting the tree and we remain honored to have been chosen for the task again this year.
This year’s tree is a 38+ foot tall Norway Spruce donated by the Hazen family of Columbia, TN. The back story behind this year’s tree is quite interesting. The Hazen’s had planted this stunning tree back in 1990. Over time and as the tree grew, the tree began to impede on their Columbia, TN, home. Due to the conifer’s ever-growing proximity, the time had come to cut the tree down. This is when Mr. and Mrs. Hazen reached out to the TN government entities to see if the tree could be used in some way. We are thrilled that they connected with the Governor’s office, in making this a win/win for everyone!
This Christmas treasure now commands attention as it sits majestically at the State Capitol donned in classic mix of 5,000 red and white lights, red and gold balls, strobe lights and topped off with a silver star. All are welcome to visit this holiday season – don’t miss it!
The official tree lighting takes place tonite from 5:30 – 6:30, with refreshments and entertainment. Governor Lee and the First Lady invite you to join them as they celebrate Christmas at the Capitol.
