TT)—Organizers say the 140-foot tree that will be the center piece of “The One” celebration and display this holiday and Christmas season is making its way to Enid from the west coast. As of this (Tuesday) morning, the semi hauling the “Christ Tree” was in Wyoming, and reporting snow. Plans call for the tree to arrive Wednesday evening, but that could change depending on how the trip is affected by weather conditions. When it does arrive, it will enter Enid from the west on US 412, and make its way to its display site on Park Avenue in downtown. The family friendly welcoming event will be at the Stride Bank Center parking lot, south of the arena at 301 S. Independence. The tree will be officially craned into its location on Thursday. There will then be several weeks of work by speciality crews to get the tree in its final display form and decorated.  Real-time updates on the tree’s arrival can be found on the official Facebook page, facebook.com/TheOneEnid.
