The Tumbleweed Christmas Tree
Chandler Arizona is unique in that this will be the 55th year in which the City has built and decorated their traditional Christmas Tree, made of nearly one thousand tumbleweeds. Actually, city employees collect between 1500 and 2000 tumbleweeds, but use only about half of them to construct the 25 ft tall tree.

A crowd of about 12,000 people is expected downtown in the A. J. Chandler Park next Saturday afternoon to witness the lighting of the tree at the conclusion of the annual Parade of Lights.
