BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) -Hundreds of tiny tots with their eyes all aglow gathered on Church Street on Friday night for the annual lighting of the tree.

The massive Colorado blue spruce that was donated to the city has roughly 100,000 lights on it.

The tree this year comes from a home in South Burlington and is 30 feet tall. Organizers say they had trouble finding a tree this year, but they finally cut it down last week. It then made a slow journey to its final destination at the top of Church Street.

Prior to the tree being lit, people got to listen to Christmas carolers bring in the season and ponder what they’re looking forward to most this season.
