A new kind of attraction is drawing visitors and tourists to Denver during the Christmas season. A 110 foot tall and 39 feet in diameter Christmas tree, the tallest installation of its kind, has been covered with more than 60,000 strands of LED lights choreographed to a wide range of holiday music. The display, located along Speer Boulevard at the Denver Performing Arts Complex, is the biggest light-up tree in North America.
The tree was lit with thousands of lights displaying to the beat of different songs from different cultures. Food and drinks are served nearby. Access to the tree, including inside, is free of charge. Those who went inside the tree were spotted tilting their heads back to fully experience the tree’s hundreds of thousands of lights.
The display will be open to the public, with music and light shows, starting every half hour for free. The display will remain open until the end of the National Western Stock Show and there will be multiple events held at the Mile High Tree throughout the holiday season as part of the city’s Mile High Holidays campaign.
