About the 100ft. Christmas Tree:

One of the best trees in the USA - For 26 years, Delray residents and visitors alike have marveled at our Famous 100 Ft Christmas Tree. In 2016 it was named by Travel & Leisure the best Tree in the state of Florida, right up there with the trees at Rockefeller Center and the White House. Building the Tree is a month-long community event that brings together people of all ages and all walks of life.  The Tree is open every day from the Tree Lighting on December 5th through January 1st from 10am-9pm. The most frequently asked question is “Is it real?”!   Visitors can walk through the 100ft. Christmas Tree and see the different scenes that include, a reindeer barn, Santa’s Workshop, 'Twas the Night before Christmas house and the kid’s favorite, the Train House!
