Winnipeg city hall isn’t getting spruced up for the holidays this Christmas.
The city said Tuesday there will not be a lit-up Christmas in front of City Hall this year.
The move comes as city crews continue to work to cleanup from the Thanksgiving weekend storm that left thousands of trees down or broken across Winnipeg.
“With our crews and significant resources dedicated to storm-related tree debris cleanup … we will not be able to install and light up a large spruce tree for the holiday season at City Hall this year,” city spokesperson Ken Allen tells Global News.
Every year, the city chooses a tree donated by a resident as the centrepiece of their holiday display at the city offices on Main Street.
Allen said the city is looking at other options to mark the season this time around.
