The U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree will be making a stop in Paducah on Tuesday, November 22nd as it makes its from Payette National Forest in Idaho to the White House in Washington, D.C. An event will be held at Noble Park showcasing the tree on the parking lot next to the baseball fields at Noble Park on November 22 from 9-11 AM. For almost 50 years the US Forest Service has provided the US Capitol Christmas Tree and over 70 "companion trees" to the US Capitol in Washington, DC. This year's tree will come from the Payette National Forest, thirteen years after the last Capitol Christmas Tree from Idaho. In addition to the many celebrations that will take place in Idaho and cross country after the tree is cut next fall there will be a variety of ways schools, businesses and civic organizations can help make this the best US Capitol Christmas Tree ever.
