MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Christmas is still a little ways away, but Milwaukee's Cathedral Square Park is already getting in the spirit.
The park is transforming into Community Spirit Park as part of the Holiday Lights Festival, and it all starts with the delivery of 150 evergreen trees.
The trees are between five and 12-feet tall and will be fixed to their bases and covered in beautiful lights. But after that is when the real fun starts.
"The best part is when the trees are all up and the lights are all on them," said Greg Peterson, Clean Sweep ambassador. "And then all those kids get to come in and decorate, that's pretty much the part where we're done with all our work and then we get to watch them come in and give their little pieces of holiday magic to all of us."
This is the 19th year for the Community Spirit Park and the 24th year for the Holiday Lights Festival.
