The Macy’s Holiday Tree installation, delayed a week due to a snapped trunk in the original tree, is planned for this Saturday, November 16. The new 55-foot Norway Spruce will adorn Fountain Square, on the corner of Fifth and Vine, through early January.
The tree is traveling about 220 miles from Rittman, Ohio and is set to arrive by 6 a.m. Initial tree installation will run from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and decoration is expected to be complete by Wednesday of the following week.
Summer in the city means it’s time to salsa on Fountain Square. Nicholas Radina, coordinator of the Thursday night dance and music parties is with Brian O’Donnell to talk about this summer’s schedule of bands and lessons.
