MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Community members were able to gather again Wednesday for the lighting of the Statehouse Christmas tree.

People gathered on the Statehouse lawn Wednesday afternoon to play and sing Christmas carols.

The 48-foot balsam fir was donated by the Cadwallader Farm in Wallingford, the first time in state history that the state has selected a tree from the same farm two years in a row.

Last year, pandemic restrictions prevented people from gathering, but now the community is coming together to celebrate the holiday season.
