CINCINNATI -- The holiday season in Cincinnati can't begin until Santa has arrived at Fountain Square, the 58-foot Norway spruce is ablaze with lights, and the fireworks are echoing off the high-rise buildings surrounding the city center.
Families flocked to the Square on Nov. 24 to ice skate, listen to the 2nd Wind band perform, and join in the annual celebration.
And Cincygram photographer Dave Schmidt was there with his camera.
