DAYTON — The Dayton Holiday Festival committee is searching for a tree that will be the centerpiece of Dayton’s Courthouse Square this holiday season.
The selected tree will be decorated with more than 50,000 lights and be unveiled at the Grande Illumination ceremony, Nov. 27.
The ideal tree will be approximately 45- to 60-feet tall and 25-feet wide.
Colorado green spruce or blue spruce trees are preferred, but other types of evergreens will be considered if they are grand and stately.
The tree must be located on the nominee’s property in the front or side yard.
Miami Valley residents who believe they have the perfect tree can nominate it by calling (937) 224-1518, ext. 221, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The winning tree will be selected by a search crew at the end of October. PSC Crane and Rigging will transport the tree to Courthouse Square at no expense to the owners, who will have the opportunity to be part of the official tree-lighting ceremony.
