DELRAY BEACH — Volunteers who helped piece together Delray Beach’s 100-foot Christmas tree attraction paused — literally — to record a “Mannequin Challenge” video.

The “Mannequin Challenge” is the latest internet video trend that was even performed at the White House during President Barack Obama’s Presidential Medal of Freedom awards this past week. Each “Mannequin Challenge” video consists of people staying motionless while the camera winds its way through an area.

The Delray Beach 100-foot Christmas tree, at Old School Square, is the most popular holiday attraction in the city. Volunteers participated in the video earlier this month, and it was posted on Facebook by the Delray Beach Marketing Cooperative.

The annual tree-lighting ceremony will be held Thursday, Dec. 1 at 5 p.m. at Old School Square.

And as you’d anticipate in a Mannequin Challenge involving a 100-foot Christmas tree, there’s at least one person hanging motionless from the tree.
