State Tree Lights Up at Capitol

Posted:

If you take a trip through our state capitol, you may leave singing 'O Christmas Tree.'

The annual State Tree Lighting Ceremony is held to ring in the holidays.

The ceremony is conducted by Governor Jack Dalrymple and First Lady Betsy Dalrymple along with live entertainment and Christmas carols.

The tree is decorated with over 360 handmade ornaments from people from all over North Dakota.

Two special students were excited to know that something they created would be seen at the capitol.

"Probably finding my ornaments."

"How many ornaments did you make?"

"Two."

"One."

"So that's pretty cool. How does it feel then to have your ornaments on the capitol's tree?"

"Kind of exciting."

"It feels awesome," say Emma Kleppe & Max Mueller.

The state capitol tree will be on display through December 31st.
