Capitol Christmas Tree Lighting Tonight!
There is a great family-friendly activity tonight at the capitol. I took my kids last year, and we loved it. Here's more information from the ND Council on the Arts:
NDCA, along with the Governor’s Office and Facility Management, invites the general public to the Lighting Ceremony for the 2013 North Dakota State Christmas Tree. The ceremony will be conducted by Governor Jack Dalrymple and First Lady Betsy Dalrymple on Monday at 5pm in the Memorial Hall of the Capitol Building in Bismarck. Live entertainment will be provided. The ceremony is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served following the ceremony. The tree will be decorated with ornaments handmade by children, students, artists and craftspeople from all over North Dakota, as has been the tradition since 1981. This year over 330 ornaments were donated to the State tree. A descriptive listing of the ornaments will be available at the ceremony
