NOW: Christmas trees arrive at Milwaukee’s Cathedral Square in preparation for Holiday Lights Festival


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- No snow yet, but Christmas trees are a sure sign that the holidays will soon be here.

You might think it's too early, but on Monday 136 trees were dropped off this morning at Milwaukee's Cathedral Square.

In less than two weeks, these trees will be prepped for the 2,5000 students who decorate the trees as part of the transformation of Cathedral Square into Community Spirit Park.

Then on November 16th, the lights there, along with those in Pere Marquette Park and Zeidler Union Square will be turned on to kick off the Milwaukee Holiday Lights Festival.
