Miami Valley residents can now nominate a tree for the 50th anniversary in November.  This year the tree will be decorated in more than 50,000 lights and golden accents; to mark the golden anniversary of the Dayton Holiday Festival planned for Friday, November 25th. A search crew will select this year's winning tree at the end of October.

Colorado green spruce or blue spruce (preferably) Other grand and stately evergreens will be considered.
