The City of Solvang officially canceled this holiday season's long-standing tradition of the Solvang Christmas Tree Burn.
The fire safety demonstration and event, usually held in early January as a wrap-up of the month-long Solvang Julefest celebration, will not be held due to COVID-19 concerns.
"We considered all options which might have allowed us to hold the Tree Burn this year, in spite of COVID-19. However, due to the possibility of the Tree Burn creating an unintended gathering, and all of the necessary logistical considerations, the City will not be holding the Tree Burn this holiday season," explained Solvang City Manager, Xenia Bradford.
In lieu of the early January event, which allows Solvang residents and businesses to safely discard their Christmas trees, the City of Solvang will offer curbside pick-up service through Waste Management.
