Following the president’s Lighting Ceremony at the end of November, guests are welcome to peruse President’s Park where the magnificent tree stands. This year’s decorations feature over 74,000 LED chips, carrying on the ten-year tradition of using 100% LED lights. It’s sure to put the twinkle in your eyes while leaving a fraction of the footprint!

The big tree isn’t the only attraction to behold during your visit. Around the park, there are more than 50 state and territory trees, adorned with hand-crafted ornaments for their own unique theme.
