FISHERSVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Charlottesville’s Grand Illumination tree is ready to go up on the Downtown Mall. The 30-foot tree is from a former Christmas tree farm in Fishersville owned by Bob and Carol Brydge.

Crews were out early Monday morning cutting down the 30-year old Norway Spruce, loading it up, and securing it for a trip over the mountain.

This is especially exciting for their 14-year-old granddaughter who lives in Charlottesville.

“She is extremely excited that a tree from a farm that she spends so many times with is going to be on display,” Carol Brydge said.

The Grand Illumination ceremony is December 3 at the Ting Pavilion from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. There will be a concert and City Market vendors.
