Tree With 80,000 Lights in Iowa Is a Must-See Road Trip This Holiday Season
If you are planning a trip and are driving on I-35 in Iowa, check to see how close you are to Hanlontown. I mention that because just a few miles off of I-35 is an everyday, normal tree that the employees at POET Biorefinery have turned into a work of art.
According to iowaroadtrip.com, the lighting of this specific tree started in 2012 or 2013 with about 14,000 lights and by the employees at POET Biorefinery and the number of lights displayed has now grown to the amazing number of 80,000!
