Why was the city’s Christmas tree moved from Riverwalk in 2013?

Julian March

Q. Why was the Downtown Wilmington Christmas tree moved from its scenic and traditional location on the Riverwalk to a parking lot this year?

A. The Nov. 29 annual downtown Wilmington holiday tree lighting ceremony was moved to the corner of north Water and Princess streets this year.

The city moved the ceremony due to load restrictions in Riverfront Park ahead of planned repairs in the area. (Though the Menorah from the Chabad of Wilmington met the load restrictions to be set up in the park.)
