Macy's Christmas tree goes up on Fountain Square

Posted: Updated:
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The season is changing and so is Fountain Square. The water is shut off at the fountain, the ice rink is going up, and a 65 foot tall 8,000 pound Norway spruce has gone up. It is a sight that means Christmas is right around the corner.

The search for the right tree is a constant process. There will be twenty 25,000 lights attached to five miles of wire that will light up downtown.

The tree is anchored by blocks which weigh four thousand pounds. The tree will be lit up the day after thanksgiving.
