Visit the official website http://thenationaltree.org/ to watch it live. Tune in early to catch all the wonderful performers entertaining us throughout the day like: Aretha Franklin, Joshua Bell, The Avett Brothers, Train, Arturo Sandoval and many, many more.
The tree has it’s own Twitter account too, which you can follow here: @theNationalTree
Get into the spirit of the holidays and support the National Park Foundation and National Park Service by tuning in, and while your’re on the site, sign up for a chance to win a poster signed by the performers! You can also learn more about the park programs, explore American history through the stories of past tree lighting ceremonies and more.
