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 25 foot Norway Spruce, donated by Dennis and Judy Cromwell, stands at the 7th Street Fountain on North Market Street while a 25 foot Blue Spruce, donated by Katherine Bradshaw, stands in front City Hall. Each year the Christmas trees at these two very special locations are enjoyed by citizens and tourists throughout the holiday season.

Mayor Randy McClement said, “The City of Frederick would like to thank Katherine Bradshaw and Dennis and Judy Cromwell for donating the trees. The Christmas trees in these two locations are a City tradition. Many people have said that as long as they can remember, there has been a Christmas tree at the fountain on 7th Street. 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 center piece 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 6th at 7:00 PM. The Christmas tree placed at the fountain on Seventh Street is the end result of a beautiful tree-lit drive down Market Street.
