Macy's holiday tree goes up in Fountain Square

Macy's 65-foot holiday tree took its place on Fountain Square Saturday.

Lights and a five-foot-tall red star will be placed on the tree within the next three days. The tree will stand at 70 feet when it's completed.

New to the tree this year are larger LED lights that will be a mix of colored and white.

The tree will be officially lit on November 25 at 6:30 p.m., during Macy's Light Up The Square event.
