A crane carried two workers up high in the air. They placed Christmas lights on a 65-foot Norway spruce tree that sits in the middle of Sundance Square.

The process of decorating the Christmas tree, which made a journey to Fort Worth from Michigan, began Nov. 17 with lights. Ornaments will go up Nov. 18-19 and lead up to a tree lighting ceremony Nov. 20.

About 60 artists were paid to paint and decorate ornaments and about 75 ornaments will find homes on the tree, said Nate Krieger, the visitor experience director at Sundance Square.

The tree lighting will take place at 5 p.m. Nov 20, an hour before the start of the Parade of Lights.
