Dressing Up for the 70th Anniversary of WaKeeney’s Christmas Tree

70 years logoThis year marks the 70thanniversary of the “Christmas City of the High Plains” and we are planning a celebration that will be bigger and more festive than ever before!

The WaKeeney “elves” are busy sprucing up the historic 1950 decorations and adding to the town’s many holiday attractions to make our town sparkle with holiday spirit and community pride.

You can become part of the effort, too!

 

“Too Lit to Quit” T-shirts

The “Too Lit to Quit” t-shirt is the official shirt celebrating the 70thanniversary of our annual Christmas event. It’s a nod toward the LED color-changing parimeter lights that were installed in 2018 during the “Get Lit” initiative. Today, you’ll find them brightening up Main Street throughout the year to celebrate holidays and events happening in our town.

The “Too Lit to Quit” t-shirts can be preordered now at the Bonfire online store, with a delivery time of 15 days. (Orders placed after the initial start date of July 15th will be filled in 15-day increments.) They come in grey/black, blue, purple, red, and Christmas green, with the official 70thanniversary and the “Too Lit to Quit” logos printed in white. The shirts can be ordered as a short sleeve or long sleeve shirt, in sizes Youth, to 3XL. The unisex classic crewneck style t-shirt is made from a long-lasting, durable 60-40 cotton/polyester blend that is combed and ringspun for a soft texture and premium feel. You can have them delivered to your home, or save on shipping charges by having them delivered to the central WaKeeney distribution point, Malay’s Market.

The proceeds from the sale of the shirts will go toward building the new Santa house in North Pole Park. This project has just gotten underway and promises to be a magical place where kids can tell their secret wishes to our annual guest of honor; Santa Clause!
