SPRINGDALE (KFSM) - Northwest Arkansas' largest living Christmas tree is now trimmed! Wednesday (Nov. 22) crews used a lift to finish putting ornaments on the nearly 40-foot-tall community tree in Shiloh Square. Downtown Springdale Alliance sold the 12-inch plain wooden balls for $10. Individuals, businesses and organizations could decorate them however they wanted and then bring them back. The fundraiser brought in more than $2,000. The tree will be lit Saturday (Nov. 25) at 5:30 PM during Christmas on the Creek.
