Before Tree Lighting Ceremony
  The main tree was not "alive", it was dark. Heartland Harmonizers Barbershop Chorus & Vocalist Heidi Joy fills the air
  with music, while children wait in long lines to see Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus. Downstairs in the new Truhlsen Lecture Hall,
  Curious George Christmas stories were told twice.
