U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree to Visit Asheville Outlets During 2020 Tour
November 17, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Every year, a different national forest is selected to provide a tree to appear on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol building for the holiday season. The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison National Forests, in partnership with nonprofit Choose Outdoors and Colorado Tourism, will bring this special gift from Colorado to Washington, D.C. for the 2020 holiday season. Ten communities will host celebrations along the way, including a special appearance at Asheville Outlets. Both in-person and drive-by options are available. Activities are open to the public and free. Face coverings are required, and social distancing protocols will be in effect.
Festivities during the tree’s visit to Asheville Outlets will include:
- An appearance by Santa Claus
- Hot Cocoa Station, ITeam Games & Photo Booth sponsored by Ingles Markets
- Food Trucks
- Live remotes with iHeart Media’s 99.9 KISS Country Eddie Fox, 104.3 STAR Ariel Rymer, and 570 WWNC Mark Starling
- Toy Drive benefiting Eblen Charities
