Arrival of the Nation’s Capitol Christmas Tree

Location: Dahlonega, GA

Date:November 24-26, 2010

Cost: Free

On November 24-26, 2010 the historic gold rush town of Dahlonega, GA will host the 75- foot official Capitol Christmas Tree as it makes its way from the Teton National Forest to the White House. Much like the Olympic Torch run, but instead resting on a giant flatbed and accompanied by a caravan of 12 vehicles, including two semi-trucks and Federal escorts, it will take stops along the way for festivities. Dahlonega, GA is one of only three Southeast stops, the others being Memphis and just outside of Washington, D. C.

People will have the opportunity to send their holiday wishes to the White House by signing a huge banner, which decorates the truck. Dahlonega will be trimmed in full holiday dress, with twinkling lights, holiday garland,bows and décor from one end of the square to the other, adding to the festive atmosphere.
