Local 8th-graders help set up new, floating Christmas tree tradition at Nauticus


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — There’s a new Christmas tradition floating near Battleship Wisconsin in Norfolk.

Residents might have seen a twinkling Christmas tree anchored in front of the Battleship Wisconsin, part of Nauticus’ “WinterFest on the Wisconsin” experience.

The floating tree serves as a gesture of hope and optimism for the community after a challenging year and will be anchored in its position throughout the holidays. 

The skiff itself was built entirely by local 8th-grade students participating in the Sail Nauticus program.  

WinterFest on the Wisconsin is now open to the public.
