New community holiday tree will make its debut Dec. 2 at Holiday Lights

When the 60-foot Colorado spruce in Homewood's Irwin Park was blown over in March, the community lost the tree that crowds gathered around for years during winter festivals. It was soon replaced by a 25-foot spruce that will make its debut as the community's new holiday tree on Dec. 2 at the Holiday Lights festival.
