CHICAGO (WLS) — Holiday cheer illuminated the historic Walnut Room at Macy’s on State Street downtown as the great tree was lit up on Saturday.
Thousands of lights twinkled to life for the 116th lighting of the holiday tree at the store in the Loop.
The event, which was open to the public, featured performances and carolers.
Workers put the finishing touches on the 45-foot tree earlier this week.
This year’s theme is “Sweet Treats.”
