Yakima's Christmas tree gets lights and decorations

YAKIMA, Wash -- With temperatures in the mid 20s and ice everywhere, most people would want to avoid climbing a ladder.

For Ryan Paulin, of Senske's Tree and Lawn Care, its all part of helping the City of Yakima get ready for Christmas.

Paulin and several co-workers were in Millennium Plaza to string over 2,500 lights on the 25 foot Colorado Blue Spruce Christmas tree. Ice on the power box delayed Paulin and his crew for a while, but once the box was open, the decorating began.

After the lights, the Yakima Fire Department moved into hang decoration made by local school children.

The tree will be lit Sunday, December 3rd.
