Deck the Halls...with LED lights!

Jingle Bull Bash
Triangle Christmas Tree Challenge

Most companies would be content to erect a Christmas tree in their lobby for the holidays, but not Capitol Broadcasting. Befitting out business, we’re partial to towers.

We decorate and light the communications tower at our Raleigh HQ on Western Blvd, and we’ve continued that tradition with the iconic Lucky Strike water tower on Durham’s American Tobacco campus.

We flipped the switch Friday evening (Dec. 3rd) amid caroling and a community celebration of the holiday season.

If you zip by American Tobacco on the freeway or Blackwell Street, you don’t realize that the complex has an expansive interior courtyard. Come for a visit. Photos don’t do the lighting display justice. It’s worthy of Disney, maybe better!

And there’s an added attraction this season: on Blackwell, next to the Durham Performing Arts Center, fifty Christmas trees line the walkway. Each tree has been cleverly decorated by a local non-profit, and there’s a contest underway that will put some cash in a charity’s treasury, the Triangle Christmas Tree Challenge.

The Bulls are sponsoring Habitat for Humanity’s Youth United tree. It’s decorated with yellow hard hats. We would appreciate your vote in support of Durham Habitat!!!
