The annual State Street holiday tree was installed in downtown Santa Barbara this past weekend.
The 36-foot tree arrived on Wednesday and was set up in its usual spot on State Street in front of the Arlington Theatre, near the intersection of Victoria Street.
Onlookers stopped to watch the large crane hoist the Oregon tree into place.
The official tree lighting ceremony will take place on December 1st with a block party hosted by the Downtown Organization from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Santa will be in attendance for photos, there will be live performances, music by DJ Darla Bea, vendors, wreath making, and an appearance by the Holiday Prince & Fairy. The event is sponsored by Consumer Fire Products, Inc.
