Only in the southwest can you find a giant tree made of tumbleweeds. Yes, tumbleweeds. It’s a tradition that dates back 60 years, and today Chandler is the only city in the southwest that has such a tree. Standing at 25 feet tall, it takes 20 gallons of white paint, 25 gallons of flame retardant, 1,200 lights, and 65 pounds of glitter to make this thing resemble a Christmas tree. More than 1,000 tumbleweeds are needed to build the tree, which are collected from the outskirts of the city throughout the year by park crews.
