There are a lot of traditions in Los Altos around Christmas time; carriage rides, Breakfast with Santa, and tree lots. One lot that was around for ages but disappeared a few years ago was the lot at Grant and Covington (technically in Mountain View) but many Los Altos residents went there.
The Kiwanis Tree Lot is one of those things you just look forward to because they've been around so long. Operating since 1987 (24 years) they've been one of the few consistent lots actually selling trees in Los Altos. Many of the "local" providers are in Montain View and not truly a Los Altos business.
As with many of the civic services that have been around a long time in Los Altos, this one benefits another institution, the Los Altos Pet Parade. That has been around for a long time as well and become an even bigger Los Altos institution. Stop by, get a great Christmas tree, and help support our fine community.
