Is that a real living tree?  That is an incredible height for a tree, but I am not an expert on how tall trees grow.

Well, 25 years ago doesn't seem that long to me, ha, ha, ha. However, a 100-foot tree in Delray Beach sounds delightful. And in another 25 years, it will be a tradition, LOL.

Good morning Kathy - just one question about the tree.  Is it real or artificial.  I am betting it is artificial.

Nina Hollander there was a bit of an uproar last year when they moved the location of the tree. Not far but not where it had been!

Joe Pryor if you haven't seen it, you should come down. Be sure to go inside the tree!

Brian England it's not real and in fact the city bought a new one last year for just under $800K. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel we make it to the tree every year and the parade. 

Sharon Lee it's the season so we pack a lot of activities in while everyone's here.

Hi John Meussner there are and I don't even make it to half of them. 

Chris Ann Cleland we're lucky because the weather is usually good for it. Although it did rain one year.
