Oh Christmas Tree: Prepping Lambeau for the HolidaysDecember 19, 2016
Lambeau Field is steeped in tradition—both on the field and off. One of the local community’s favorite traditions is the lighting of the stadium’s holiday tree at its annual Festival of Lights.
A lot of care and consideration goes into preparing Lambeau’s tree each season. Miron was tasked with transporting this year’s lucky winner, a 35-foot-tall spruce, from its original residential location in Ashwaubenon to its new home in front of Lambeau Field.
As you can imagine, this was no small task. Planning for the move began two weeks prior with the coordination of equipment and manpower. All said and done, it took a crew of 11 individuals, with the help of a 165-ton mobile crane, approximately 5 hours to cut the tree down, move it down the road, and position it in front of Lambeau Field.
