Christmas Tree Arrives at Fountain Square

Cincinnati- FOX19's Regina Russo email - bio

Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming!  The Fountain Square tree arrived on Fountain Square at 8am Saturday morning.  It will take hours to install on the corner of 5th and Vine streets. But when it is all done, it will be decorated with 20,000 lights!

This year's tree is 50 feet tall, with a five foot root ball and a five foot red Macy's Star. The pine tree is from the same yard  as last year's tree: the yard of Richard and Cindy Duffy in Wooster, Ohio.

The tree will be the centerpiece for "Macy's Light Up 2009" the annual tree lighting and kickoff to the holiday season in Cincinnati, November 27th the day after Thanksgiving.
