The Capitol Christmas tree stopped at McConnell Air Force Base this morning. The 70-foot tall tree is headed to Washington D.C. where it will be displayed in front of the Capitol building.
The tree came from Colorado, and is making stops in cities along the way East.
"People are pretty excited about the fact that this tree is coming through," said Ken Coffin, Capitol Christmas tree coordinator. "It's a gift from Colorado to the people of the United States and there's a lot of excitement about that."
It should take 23 days to make the journey to Washington. The US Forrest Service donates a tree every year, and the trip is paid for through private sponsors.
