Downtown to be decked out for holidays
Christmas in the City
November 3, 2004 - Two 20-foot live trees were installed Tuesday in downtown Knoxville - harbingers of Christmas in the City festivities.

The trees are just the beginning of holiday decorations that will adorn Knoxville in the coming weeks. Poles will be decorated with 100 wreaths, 400 trees will sit atop rooftops and more than 100,000 lights will be strung.

Tree Installed DowntownThe Norway spruce trees, donated by the Corum family of East Knox County, are located in Krutch Park near Gay Street and the Cradle of Country Music Park on Summit Hill Drive.

The decorations provide a festive setting for a multitude of events planned for November and December.

Local arts and crafts and plenty of greenery will fill Market Square Nov. 17 to Nov. 20 for the Crafts and Greenery Market.

Mayor Bill Haslam will flip the switch that lights up downtown on Nov. 19 during the Celebration of Lights festival on Market Square. The activities begin at 6 p.m. and include music, a children's area and wagon rides.

Festivities move to the waterfront on Nov. 26 for the Pilot Riverlights Festival, which includes music, entertainment and a boat parade.

A list of holiday activities, including special offerings from Knoxville area arts and non-profit organizations, can be found on the City of Knoxville's web site, www.cityofknoxville.org/christmas.
