GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- It's a sure sign the holidays are near as a 41-foot Christmas tree has been installed downtown Grand Rapids.
The tree was installed early Tuesday at Rosa Parks Circle.
Rockford Construction and the City of Grand Rapids brought the 41-foot tree from Manton to Grand Rapids.
This kicks off the beginning of holiday traditions downtown, including the opening of the ice rink at Rosa Parks Circle this Friday at 3 p.m.
The annual tree lighting ceremony is planned for Friday, December 6 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
