Get your Christmas tree from Toledo’s very own “Christmas Tree Ship.” On Saturday, December 1, freshly cut Christmas trees will arrive at the National Museum of the Great Lakes, brought by a Geo. Gradel Co. tugboat and escorted by Santa. Come down to the museum to participate in this Toledo tradition. Pre-purchase your tree and watch it come off the tug and into your hands.
The trees will be approximately 5 to 7 feet tall. Each tree is $45 and includes refreshments and a meeting with Santa. Santa will arrive at approximately 12pm.
Pre-order your tree by 5pm on Tuesday, November 27. No walk-up sales will be available. Spectators are welcome with museum admission.
This year we are working with the East Toledo Family Center to provide trees for local families. Purchase a Christmas tree to donate and help spread holiday cheer.
