LIGHTS COME ON AT 4PM
“In lieu of our traditional tree lighting event, Portland Downtown and Hood® Eggnog will be bringing back the 24/7 live-streaming “tree cam” overlooking Monument Square. Modeled after websites such as WindowSwap, the tree cam creates a virtual window so that visitors locally – and across the globe – can enjoy the illuminated tree and its surroundings anytime, anywhere throughout the holiday season. Whether it’s at home, in the office, or in person – one of downtown’s most spectacular holiday sights is just a click away!
In addition to allowing viewers to catch a glimpse of the tree in any light (dawn, dusk, or night) or any weather (snow, fog, or rain), the tree cam will also capture exciting moments such as the tree’s arrival to Monument Square, as well as its installation by the City of Portland Forestry crew, Keeley Crane Service, and Shaw Brothers Construction. While there will not be a scheduled “countdown” to the lighting of the tree, it will be illuminated on Black Friday (November 26).”
