State Capitol Holiday Tree being set up for holiday season

MADISON, Wis. — It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Wisconsin State Capitol as workers put up this year’s holiday tree.

A News 3 Now crew captured crews setting up the State Capitol Holiday Tree in the Rotunda Friday morning. Holiday displays are also being set up elsewhere on the Capitol grounds.

The tree is not yet adorned with ornaments; kids from across the state have until Tuesday to submit handmade ornaments to be displayed on the tree.

This year’s tree theme is “Wisconsin Waters,” celebrating the importance of lakes, rivers and streams across the Badger State.

A tree-lighting ceremony is planned for noon on Dec. 6.
