SOLD OUT FOR 2021! If you’re interested in a tree, please contact Sarah at Main Street Washington directly at 319-653-3918. We are working to acquire additional trees.

Beginning in 2017, Main Street Washington honors someone special, who perhaps has gone before us, through the Lights of Love Memory Tree project. Each holiday season 5 foot tall Christmas Trees are lit in Central Park from Thanksgiving to New Years, illuminated with White Lights & a Red Bow.

Each honoree will be announced as the memorial trees and Downtown Washington are illuminated on the night of November 28th during our Holiday SNOW Lighting Ceremony and Lighted Holiday Parade. Trees will remain lit throughout the Holiday Season. The names of the donors and honorees will also appear on our website and in print advertising to thank the donors for the belief in our downtown. All trees are tax deductible donations & benefit the continued work of Main Street Washington.

Donors are welcome to decorate their loved ones tree. Main Street Washington strongly encourages shatterproof ornaments. Trees will remain in Central Park until New Years. They will be taken down starting January 4th, 2021 weather permitting.
