JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – With a just around a dusting of new fallen snow in Jamestown over the weekend, many might be getting into the holiday spirit around our community.

In Downtown Jamestown on Monday, those with the City’s Parks Department were feeling festive as they continued preparations to get this year’s Christmas Tree ready for its grand debut next month.

The 40-foot Norway Spruce was harvested from New Hope Community Church last Tuesday, before it was brought to Jamestown City Hall for display at Tracy Plaza.

Over the next few weeks, crews will work to prepare the tree for display. Our camera’s caught the “pruning process” as arborists cut and trimmed excesses greenery.

In the end, the Spruce will be decked out with over 3,000 energy saving LED lights ahead of the ceremonial lighting during this year’s Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 3.

For onlookers like Kris Gorman and Leann Austin, seeing the work underway helps spread holiday cheer. However, they aren’t too happy about the new fallen snow.
