State Christmas trees are on the way

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — It’s about to look a lot like Christmas in the state capital.

New York state’s holiday trees will be cut down and transported to Empire State Plaza in downtown Albany this week.

On Wednesday, a blue spruce that will light up Empire State Plaza is being donated by the VanAken family of Schenectady. And on Thursday, a 30-foot blue spruce is being donated by the Keeler family of Burnt Hills and will be placed in East Capitol Park.

Lights will be turned on both trees at the state tree lighting and fireworks celebration on Sunday, December 7. Caroling starts at 4:45, followed by the tree lighting and fireworks at 5:15 p.m. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
