‘Tis the Season…Almost

11/9/11-St. Louis city firefighters and members of the Salvation Army began work Wednesday morning to assemble the Tree of Lights at Kiener Plaza downtown. The tree is actually made up of 300 Scotch Pine Christmas trees that are at the end of their lifespan, assembled on a metal framework in the shape of one big tree. There's a twist this year as the site is right next to the tent city where dozens of Occupy St. Louis protestors have been camped out for weeks. Organizers say the Macy's Holiday Festival of Lights ceremony will take place at 4 pm Fri., Nov. 18, whether or not the Occupyers are still present. (KMOX/Brett Blume)
