Channelside Donates Christmas Tree To Channel District


Channelside Bay Plaza, a regional lifestyle entertainment facility on the waterfront in the Channel District of downtown Tampa, is donating its Christmas tree to the Channel District for the annual holiday display at Washington Street Park in downtown Tampa.

The Christmas tree is 35 feet tall and requires an event production team for installation. The tree includes decorations, ornaments and lights.

In support of this display, the Channel District will be hosting an inaugural Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration on Sunday, December 3rd from 2:00P.M.- 6:00P.M. at the Washington Street Parking in the Channel District of Downtown Tampa. The event will feature a holiday toy drive to support Balance Tampa Bay.
