This great Madison tradition was started by the late Dr. Jack Kammer of the Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Madison. He planted the 228 trees back in 1986. By 1995 they were large enough to decorate and they created a sensation on University Avenue on Madison’s West side. He passed away May 13, 2010. The lights continue though, put up by volunteers.

I must go back this year, I took this picture two years ago (11-28-11), before I had my new camera.
