Behind the Scenes: Lowell’s Smokestack Christmas Tree
What does it take to make a 256-foot Christmas tree? Well, 5,000+ lights, LOTS of ladders and some folks who clearly have no fear of heights.
MVM photographer Kevin Harkins spent a few days following the dedicated crew that sets up the Christmas tree smokestack at Wannalancit Mills in Lowell. We hope you enjoy his behind-the-scenes look at the planning, organization and hard work that goes into creating this local holiday landmark each year.
