Lobster Trap Christmas Tree in Rockland

So, we've heard about this tree for years now and we finally had a chance to get up there and see it! It really is quite the structure! The green traps make a great base for the tree. Lobster buoys are the 'bulbs' and a giant lobster is the tree topper.

If you would like a chance to win 100 of the lobster traps, here's a link to the 2010 raffle.

Here's more info and history on the lobster trap tree. (Very slow-loading photos, scroll down and read the text first.)

Discovery Network was on hand this year to film the tree lighting which will be part of an 'extreme Christmas Tree' show to air in the 2011 Christmas season.
