The tallest live Christmas tree in Texas now graces Sundance Square ahead of the 77th annual tree lighting tradition on Wednesday, Dec. 6. The 80-ft tall Norway Spruce traveled 1,100 miles from northern Michigan and was raised over the weekend.

Later this week, crews will install lights and hang handmade ornaments created by local artists on the tree.

Join singer Marie Osmond for a holiday concert with the Interfaith Choir at 6:30 p.m. before Mayor Mattie Parker counts down to the tree lighting at 7 p.m.

Sundance Square will unveil the Light the World Texas Giving Machines on Tuesday, Dec. 5, which will accept cashless holiday charity donations from 10 regional and global organizations through Thursday, Dec. 7.

Don’t forget to snap a holiday family photo next to the mirrored cowboy hat — which has been moved to the west side of the square next to the stage.
