Capitol Christmas Tree Stop
U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree to Visit Dickinson
Every year, a different national forest is selected to provide a tree to appear on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol for the Christmas season. The Kootenai National Forest, in partnership with nonprofit Choose Outdoors, will bring this special gift from Montana to Washington, D.C. for the 2017 season. It will involve more than 15 communities along the way, including an appearance in Dickinson, on Saturday, Nov. 18, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. MST, at Villard Street and Sims.
The tree will be cut in November and prepared for the more-than-2,000 mile expedition. Festivities during the tree's visit to Dickinson will include a visit by Santa Claus, and the Dickinson State University Choir. Activities are open to the public and free for all to enjoy.
