Iowa towns with their Christmas Tree on Main Street

I was driving through Manning, Iowa and noticed their town Christmas tree was located in the middle of the main intersection. After posting this to Facebook, I asked Iowa Road Trip followers if they were aware of any other towns in Iowa that have a Christmas tree on their Main Street or in the town square – and if they wanted to submit photos of their hometown Christmas tree. Here are a few that were submitted and if you have more, you’re welcome to submit them to be added to this page.

Story City, Iowa

Glidden, Iowa

Photo by Brooke Peterson, who wrote, “This picture was taken during our annual town winter celebration Winter Wonderland. It features our Community Holliday Tree in the middle of Main Street in which community members decorate clear bulbs and zip-tie them to the tree. Our annual event has grown each year so this year we moved the celebration to the Glidden Fire Department and added The Christmas Bus so attendees could ride around town and look at all the light displays.

The Christmas Bus is a free will donation. Every penny donated will be spilt as follows:
❄️Each ride through Swan Lake, $10 will be donated to the Carroll County EMS.
❄️The other funds will be split 50/50 between Community of Concern food pantry and New Opportunities Kids Christmas fund.

Mt. Pleasant, Iowa

They don’t have a Christmas Tree decorated, but since Mt. Pleasant is home to the Midwest Old Threshers Reunion, they do have this piece decorated on the town square.
