Local Fort Worth artists are returning this week to paint large beach-ball size ornaments for the 2022 Fort Worth Community Christmas Tree which is celebrating its 75th Anniversary.
The ornament painting will be held in the Sundance Square Pavilion this Monday and Tuesday (Nov 7 & 8) from 11 am to 7 pm.
Fort Worth’s Community Christmas Tree tradition was started in 1947 by Star-Telegram publisher Amon Carter. In 1956, the project was adopted by the Fort Worth Jaycees and shifted to Sundance Square in 2004.
Last year’s 55’ Norway Spruce was the tallest LIVE Christmas Tree in Texas; with this bragging right expected to continue in 2022 upon arrival Monday next week (Nov 14th) of a 65’ Norway Spruce from Michigan.
This year’s formal tree lighting will be sponsored by Amazon and will held on Saturday, November 19th at 5:15 p.m. and will be dedicated to the United Way of Tarrant County’s 2022-2023 Centennial fundraising Campaign.
Fort Worth’s popular “Parade of Lights” is scheduled the next day on Sunday, November 20th starting at 6 pm. https://fortworthparadeoflights.org
