The first municipal tree to be city-sponsored was in the 1950’s, placed at the intersection of Fifth and Main. This location became the traditional spot for the Edmonds holiday tree. In 2000, when the fountain was installed, it was instead decorated with holiday lights. In 1976 the Ganahl-Hanley log cabin was relocated to Fifth and Bell, and was soon designated as the Edmonds official “Holiday House.” The holiday tree now stands across from City Hall in Centennial Plaza, adjacent to the log cabin. The tree lighting ceremony brings Edmonds citizens together to enjoy the lights, share the holiday spirit and sing Christmas Carols.
