Ready for the journey

The star that will sit atop the national Christmas tree will be in Billings at ZooMontana on Wednesday. It was crafted with copper and Plexiglas and was designed and funded by Missoula's Washington Companies. Fabricator Split Mountain Metals, a Belgrade-based business, constructed it.

The copper star that will sit atop the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree in Washington, D.C., will be making a stop in Billings this week on its way east. 

A community celebration is planned at ZooMontana from 9 to 11 a.m. on Wednesday, where the star will be on display. PayneWest Insurance is providing cookies and warm drinks and the Missoula-based Washington Companies, which designed the star, will give out candy canes and pictures of the tree-topper. 

Organizers have also planned a drawing with prizes. ZooMontana is donating four $10 car passes to ZooLights for the event, and PayneWest has donated an Amazon Echo as the grand prize. Attendees can enter the drawing all through the event. Organizers will draw the winners just before 11 a.m.
