Greensboro has chosen its Christmas Tree! After an appeal to the community for just the right tree, the Greensboro Main Street program announces that the city’s official Christmas Tree will be donated by the Webb Family.
“In the past, Greensboro has been fortunate to have a tree donated from someone in the community,” explains Main Street Manager, Kendrick Ward. “The tree serves as the centerpiece for all of our holiday activities in downtown and helps to create a festive mood during the holiday shopping season.”
Greensboro’s friendly merchants are ready to help you get all of your holiday shopping done this season – without the hectic traffic and crowds of your typical shopping mall. Shoppers can take advantage of extended holiday shopping hours on Friday and Saturday evenings from now and continuing through December 23.
