NASHVILLE, Tenn. - With a flip of a switch, it's going to feel a lot like Christmas as state officials turn on the state Capitol tree at the annual Christmas at the Capitol event.
Governor Bill Haslam and his wife Chrissy will host Monday night's event.
This year's tree is a Norway spruce approximately 35 feet tall and 4,500 pounds. It's located outside of the state capitol entrance at Charlotte Avenue.
The Christmas tree at the Capitol went up last week, and Crissy and I will light it tonight. The 35 ft Norway spruce was donated by the Mazzo family of Burns. They planted it in their yard on New Year’s Day 1983 after purchasing it for use as a live Christmas tree. pic.twitter.com/1XltZ56XfW— Gov. Bill Haslam (@BillHaslam) November 27, 2017
