For more than 20 years, Delray residents and visitors alike have marveled at our Famous 100 Ft Christmas Tree. In 2012 it was named as one of the best Trees in all of the USA, right up there with the trees at Rockefeller Center and the White House. Building the Tree is a month-long community event that brings together people of all ages and all walks of life. The Tree is open every day from the Tree Lighting on December 4th through January 1st. We count on our volunteers to man the Tree, ask for donations and answer endless questions about the Tree and Delray Beach. Without our volunteer coordinators, Allison Good and Mary Anne Volpe, we
ouldn’t be able to keep the Tree open day and night for visitors to marvel at. The most frequently asked question is “Is it real?”
