City Christmas Trees in Traditional Locations

Frederick, MD -- The City of Frederick’s Arborist Tom Rippeon placed Christmas trees in two traditional locations in The City of Frederick. A 30-foot Norway Spruce, donated by City of Frederick employee Jim Mathews, stands at the 7th Street Fountain on North Market Street while a 30-foot Blue Spruce, donated by Mike Waters in memory of his mother, Ruth Joyce Waters, stands in front City Hall.

Mayor McClement said, “The City of Frederick would like to thank Mike Waters and Jim Mathews for donating the trees. The Christmas trees in these two locations are a City tradition. These two trees highlight the traditional walks and drives around Frederick for many citizens and visitors.”

The Christmas tree in front of City Hall serves as the centerpiece for the annual Festival of Lights illumination held in the historic courtyard in front of City Hall which will take place this year on Friday December 5th at 7:00 PM. During the ceremony, Mayor Randy McClement will light the City Hall Christmas tree.

The Christmas tree placed at the fountain on Seventh Street is located at the end of a beautiful tree-lit drive down Market Street. Many people have said that as long as they can remember, there has been a Christmas tree at the fountain on 7th Street.
