The 88th Trek to the Nation's Christmas Tree in the Kings Canyon National Park will be held Dec. 8.

Park explorers can gather around the world-famous General Grant Tree and listen to a holiday message while the Jubilant Singers, Tubachristmas Ensemble and Sanger High School choir perform. During the ceremony, a National Park Service representative will speak to the tree's role as a memorial to the men and women in the military.

Park admission will be free from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. There will be a shuttle from the Kings Canyon Visitor Center to the Grant Tree Trail entrance. Shuttle users should allow for an extra 30 minutes of commute time.

The Sanger Chamber of Commerce will also offer a chartered bus from its office. The Trek service bus is $30 per person, and the lunch bus and dinner bus are $50 per person. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Sanger Chamber of Commerce at (559) 875-4575.
