FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Midtown Harrisburg to host traditional city-style Holiday Tree stand while assisting Central Penn Food Bank and Salvation Army
Three Midtown Harrisburg residents announced plans today to host Midtown Harrisburg’s very own authentic Holiday Christmas Tree lot located in the heart of Midtown at 1301 Front Street between Sayford and Verbeke Streets.
The project, dubbed “Midtown’s Home for The Holidays and Tree Stand,” will begin November 24, the day after
Thanksgiving, also known as “Black Friday,” and run until December 23 (or while inventory lasts).
Midtown’s Home for The Holidays and Tree Stand will offer a variety of Christmas Trees and accessories for purchase and encourage Harrisburg residents to celebrate the Holidays together at the location, which will feature a
traditional, 1950s-style appeal including caroling from local school choirs, free hot cocoa and a place for residents to join together and mingle during the season.
The planners said the lot will “have a very traditional, historic-city tree lot theme, akin to the good memories so often memorialized in Holiday films.”
“Midtown’s historic charm and character set the stage for just such a project,” they added. “We believe with the
support of residents, who have been exceedingly active in the Midtown community this past year, this will be a welcomed and memorable event that will become a standard in Midtown for years to come.”
To complete the picture, the hosts plan to offer up everything from free hot cocoa (with marshmallows, of course) and the standard string-of-light bulb illumination, to the roaring fire in the fifty five gallon drum to keep the employees warm. Carolers from local schools and organizations will be featured regularly and residents are invited to join them
Midtown’s Home for The Holidays and Tree Stand has joined forces with the Central PA Food Bank and The Salvation Army as a drop spot. Patrons may bring offerings of canned and non perishable goods in addition to new, unwrapped toys to donate to needy families this Holiday season.
Midtown’s Home for The Holidays and Tree Stand opens on Black Friday November 24 and will keep the following hours:
Ample parking is available on site.
