CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati had a cold, gray Thanksgiving week, but the annual Macy’s Light Up the Square celebration brought color, light and holiday spirit to the thousands who crowded Fountain Square to watch.

"I can’t wait to tell people in Florida," said Tracee Newell, a Cincinnati native who this week returned from the Sunshine State for the first time in 15 years. "I watched it on TV in Florida, and I am very excited to be here tonight."
