I guess we can say Christmas arrives in downtown Yakima on Monday!

A 40-foot spruce will arrive at Millennium Plaza in downtown Yakima around 10 a.m. Monday. A resident of Terrace Heights is donating the tree.

The official tree lighting will be on Sunday, Dec. 3, at the conclusion of Yakima's annual Holiday Lighted Parade. That parade begins at 6 p.m.
