Experience the magic of the holiday season with the lighting of the Macy’s Great Tree at Lenox Square on Thanksgiving November 22, 2012. For more than six decades generations of Atlantans have welcomed the season with the lighting of the Great Tree, and the tradition continues this year as more than 100,000 people from all over gather at Macy’s Lenox Square to witness this cherished holiday event.
The lighting of Atlanta’s most beloved and recognized Christmas tree will take place in front of Macy’s at Lenox Square from 7 PM to 8 PM. A pre-show concert will begin at 6:15 PM. The celebration will be capped off with a fantastic fireworks finale to holiday music at 8 PM which sets the tone for the lighting of the 70-foot white pine filled with more than 4,000 lights.
WSB-TV’s Jovita Moore and David Chandley will host the live broadcast ceremony that will include a variety of performances to help light the tree including musical performances by Academy of Country Music and CMT award winner Trace Adkins, The Voice Season Two finalist Chris Mann, recording artist and star of the Nickelodeon hit series, “How to Rock,” Cymphonique Miller, Macy’s All-Star Holiday Choir, Macy’s All Star Cheer Squad, and much more!
What a moving and memorable way to kick off the holiday season! And I can’t think of anything more exciting than to spend Thanksgiving with my family at such a magical event. We will see you there!
