The 60-foot-tall white fir, grown near Redding, was delivered on Election Day.

It was decorated with around 10,000 low-energy lights and 900 ornaments made by children and adults with developmental disabilities.

The ceremony gets underway at 5 p.m.

Attendees are asked to bring canned goods for the Sacramento Food Bank.
