As Thanksgiving festivities begin to wrap up, Christmas season quickly rolls in. One of the most celebrated Christmas traditions is the Annual National Christmas Tree Lighting at Washington DC. The ceremony is a unifying event that both local and national communities share to celebrate the holiday season. The event has a rich history dating back to 1923 and President Calvin Coolidge. Since then, the event has changed locations several times and has evolved into a larger production.

[EVENT RECAP] Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
Mountain Productions worked with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to set up structural technical support for the “NBC Host Position”. The parade took place on Broadway / 34th Street in NYC. This is Mountain’s third year in a row helping out at this iconic event.
Specifically, Mountain Productions provided a 60′ x 13′ Aluminum Truss Lighting Support Grid and a 49′ x 20′ Camera / VIP / Host Platform. The structure was constructed to allow pedestrians to walk underneath the platform without obstruction.
