The Magic Tree

 

LIT DAILY FROM 5 TO 10 PM 

 

 

What is the Magic Tree?


Nearly 200,000 colorful lights (that's 38 miles worth!) illuminate The Crossing's 85-foot sycamore tree, reminding us that all 200,000 members of Boone county matter to God.

Stop by to admire The Magic Tree and take photos anytime. Plus, you won't want to miss our special Friday night experiences. 

Find more details about what to expect at the Magic Tree in 2022 here:
