Entertainer Nick Cannon and a Make-A-Wish child help launch the holiday season in downtown Chicago with the lighting of the 45-foot-tall Macy's Great Tree in the historic Walnut Room. Lauren Alaina, "American Idol" Season 10 runner-up, sings two holiday songs. Following the lighting, guests can get Cannon's autograph when they buy a tie from his new neckwear line. Head to the children's department afterwards for face painting and balloon art.
