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.
