The large tree in the center of the park will be “Honoring Idaho’s Brave”.  The tree will be decorated red, white, and blue and have ornaments for the brave men and women from Idaho that have served or are serving in the military. There will also be an ornament for each branch of service, an ornament for each Battalion of the Idaho Army National Guard, and an ornament for each Gold Star Soldier since September 11, 2001, our Killed In Action Service Members will be represented with a Purple ribbon tied for their sacrifice.  You’ll also enjoy the trees in the Plaza that have been decorated by local schools and other groups. You’ll be entertained with a color guard presentation, the singing of the national anthem, and then Christmas carols. Enjoy the free horse drawn trolley rides (2:00 to 4:45PM) before the Mayor and Santa turns on the lights at 5:30pm.  The horse drawn trolley rides will also be available Dec 1, 8, 15 & 22 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.  Sponsored by Syringa Networks, CableOne , Pop’s Ice Cream, Idaho Escape Rooms, ARTI, WeeBee Toys
