The annual North Dakota state Christmas tree lighting is set for 5:30 p.m. Dec. 6 in Memorial Hall at the state Capitol in Bismarck.
Gov. Doug Burgum and first lady Kathryn Helgaas Burgum will lead the ceremony with the theme of "Dream. Hope. Act."
The tree's theme is in line with the first lady's platform of recovery from addiction.
The ceremony will include traditional songs, readings and music from pianist Joel Gilbertson and the Simle Singers.
Those planning to attend the public event may park in the visitors lot south of the Capitol building and enter through the south entry.
