If you need any help getting into the Christmas spirit this year, I feel like a seven-story digital Christmas tree should do the trick, right? America’s tallest digital tree will be back in downtown Denver this holiday season! 

The Mile High Tree, a seven-story tall, 39-foot diameter conical structure, features light shows choreographed to multi-cultural holiday music on the tallest pixel LED technology tree in the country.

The tree stands 10 feet taller than the tree in Rockefeller Center and contains 60,000 LED lights.

The giant tree will return to Denver’s Civic Center Park, next to Denver Christkindlmarket, the city’s German holiday market, near the City and County Building.

An annual lighting ceremony will be held Friday, Nov. 17, at 5:15 p.m.

The Mile High Tree will be lit up nightly from Friday, Nov. 17, through Sunday, Dec. 31 from 5 to 10 p.m. Entry to see the tree is free and open to the public.
