This year, Christmas Tree Lane continues its delightful tradition, celebrating the Lane’s 92nd anniversary and making it one of the longest-running holiday events in our nation. Christmas Tree Lane’s spectacular sparkling display was born in 1920 with the decoration of one single tree, as a way to honor a young boy who had died in a home on the Lane. Who could ever have imagined that the lighting of that one residential tree would grow into a spectacular display that now stretches for two miles, includes well over 100 homes and each Christmas season captivates one hundred thousand visitors.
