Participants sought for Madison Station Polar Express Christmas Tree Trail

MADISON – With so many holiday events being canceled this year or held virtually due to COVID-19, it is refreshing for many to see an annual tradition in downtown Madison will still be held. The 7th Annual Madison Polar Express Christmas Tree Trail, hosted by the Madison Station Historic Preservation Society and the City of Madison, is planning for another exciting display.

In a few weeks, decorated Christmas trees will line the area between Main Street Café and Sullivan Street in the heart of downtown Madison. They will be part of the 2020 Christmas tree decorating contest. Businesses, groups, organizations and individuals enter the contest and decorate a tree. Participants are eligible for awards, including “Mayor’s Choice”, “Most Creative” and “Honorable Mention”.

According to Madison Station Historic Preservation Society president Debbie Overcash, the trees will be spread out a minimum of eight to ten feet in the fresh air to allow visitors to enjoy a little “normal” this Christmas season. “Trees will again be on Main Street and depending on spacing and volume may continue onto Front Street,” she said.

Overcash said she is hoping to see a lot participating this year. “This is especially important this year,” she said. “This will be a wonderful holiday experience.”

If your group/organization would like to participate, please download the registration form by clicking here. Mail it in, with payment, to the Madison Station Historic Preservation Society c/o Debbie Overcash at 110 Sanoma Drive, Madison, AL 35758. Please register in a timely manner as trees will be limited and available on a first come/first served basis.

“Due to any unforeseen delays, we ask for your patience as the timeline is completely dependent upon the availability and delivery of the trees,” Overcash added. “We thank you for your participation and hope to see your group’s tree at the 2020 Madison Polar Express. We’re looking forward to seeing you and your beautiful trees in our beautiful, historic downtown Madison this holiday season!”
