Sundance Square brightens up for the holidays with the Parade of Lights.
Sundance Square has the Christmas spirit.
On Friday, Sundance Square hosted the 8th Annual Fort Worth Parade of Lights. Tens of thousands of people crowded the streets to get a look at more than 100 floats decorated with lights.
But the big draw was a big tree. Santa Claus came into town to help light up a 55-foot blue spruce from Michigan decorated with ornaments.
Based on reaction from kids in the crowd, the event was a hit.
“We get to see the tree light up, and we get to see, we get to see Santa!” said an excited Kaila Delane of Irving. “It's my first time, but I kind of like it. It's like New York.”
Hundreds of people waited in line to pose for a picture with Santa and the tree. Pictures are $7 and benefit charity.
