FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - Friday evening, about 40,000 lights affixed to a large spruce tree on Broadway Plaza will light up to usher in the holiday season.

Christmas on Broadway is in its 16th year, and while the event was scaled back due to COVID-19 restrictions, organizers hope the tree will spread holiday spirit for all.

“This event is awesome for the neighborhood. Great seeing people come out and see it. Obviously, it's going to be a little different this year but it's great to see the kids and people come out and enjoy it," Christmas on Broadway Electrician Mark Mongold said.
