Once touted by LIFE Magazine as, “The World’s Largest Living Christmas Tree”, Lucky has been at the center of Bothell’s Holiday Celebrations since 1937. While the tree has been topped and is shorter now, Lucky remains much loved by the townsfolk. Please come join us again under the tree for the countdown at the Bothell Tree Lighting Festival!
