TOPEKA (KSNT) -The 2014 Community Christmas Tree has been chosen in Topeka.

The Westar Energy Holiday Committee, in conjunction with the Miracle on Kansas Avenue Committee, have chosen the 2014 Community Christmas Tree.    The tree is a soft needle pine towering nearly 30 feet.

The 2014 Christmas Tree was located in southwest Topeka and is being donated by Chris Howe.  A crew from Westar cut the tree Tuesday morning and will be taking it to its new location on the north side of the Statehouse Grounds at 8th & VanBuren.

Westar Energy, State of Kansas and community  volunteers will decorate the tree, getting it ready for the Miracle on Kansas Avenue celebration on Saturday, November 29.

The official tree lighting ceremony is scheduled for 5:30 on the evening of November 29, followed by the Miracle on Kansas Avenue lighted parade at 6 p.m.
