Preparations for Christmas tree, ice rink in Wausau's 400 block
WAUSAU (WAOW) -- It's beginning to look a little more like Christmas on Wausau's 400 block.
Crews blocked off one lane of traffic when they put up the 40-foot tree on the northwest corner of the square. City leaders said they're getting ready to set up the outdoor ice rink on the 400 block this year and already have the warming shack in place.
You may remember last year, the block was being renovated so they couldn't set up the tree or the rink. The parks department will also build four other outdoor ice rinks for the upcoming winter season.
