Tinsel Trail grand opening at Government Plaza is tonight
By WVUA 23 News Reporter Michaela Redmond
The Tinsel Trail is back in Tuscaloosa, with more than 190 live Christmas trees sponsored and decorated by local businesses and organizations for a good cause.
The trail’s grand opening happens tonight at 5:30 at Government Plaza alongside Holidays on the Plaza, which made the move along with the Tinsel Trail from the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater to downtown Tuscaloosa this year.
Sunday afternoon, Tammy Tierce was singing along to Christmas music and decorating her organization’s canine-themed tree.
All trees were purchased by individuals or businesses to benefit Tuscaloosa’s One Place, a family resource charity organization.
“I think it’s a wonderful way to get the community out and reconnected and instill a new sense about the holiday spirit,” said Tierce.
