Crews prepare tree for lighting ceremony

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Downtown Baton Rouge is preparing for the Capital City's oldest holiday tradition.

Crews put ornaments on the 35 foot Christmas tree Thursday in the North Boulevard Town Square.

It all leads up to Friday night's Festival of Lights where Mayor Kip Holden will flip the switch, illuminated downtown with half a million sparkling lights.
