Style: Christmas at the Capitol

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published December 23, 2013 at 11:09 a.m.

The Arkansas Capitol is the people’s house, and a house needs decorating for Christmas, writes Ron Wolfe in Style.

The lights went on Dec. 7 in spite of a winter storm that put many other festivities on ice.

New is the lighting of the Capitol’s west side, the back, for the 75th state Capitol lighting ceremony earlier this month. Also new, the show is designated a “Southern Travel Treasure” by AAA Southern Traveler magazine.

“Other people have figured out what we who live here already knew,” says David Ware, Capitol historian in the Arkansas secretary of state’s office.

See tomorrow’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for Stephen B. Thornton’s photos of this year’s bigger-than-ever display.
