The annual Macy’s Great Tree Lighting at Lenox Square in Buckhead will start a little earlier on Thanksgiving evening at 5 p.m.

Before the big tree atop the Macy’s store is lit, The Isley Brothers, The Pentatonix and operatic tenor Timothy Miller will perform. Macy’s is using an artificial tree again this year, but at 56 feet tall and with more than 45,000 twinkling lights, you probably won’t notice.

Parking will be limited, so organizers are encouraging everyone to take MARTA. If you’re still in a turkey coma, you can watch it live on WSB.

  1. Yep, do and did notice the artificial tree. Last year was such a bomb, so disappointing, skipped this year. Macy’s tree lighting just not the same, bummer!
