HELENA- The Helena Chamber of Commerce says the tree that adorns the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. will stop in Helena.
The tree will be in front of the Montana State Capitol building on November 16 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Governor Steve Bullock, Helena Mayor Jim Smith, and Montana Attorney General Tim Fox will speak. The event will also serve as a Thanksgiving-themed food drive for the Helena Food Share.
The Capitol Christmas tree will stop in more than 15 different cities before it is lit up on them in front of the U.S. Capitol building.
Ornaments created by Montanans will decorate the tree.
