SALT LAKE CITY -- The holidays are in session at The Gateway downtown.

Saturday, the 50-foot pine tree was lit up at the Olympic Plaza. It's a tradition that provides Utahns an opportunity to listen to holiday music and feast on free treats.

Despite the cold, wet weather, musicians Peter Breinholt and his band, along with the One Voice Children's Choir bravely played on.

KSL's Nadine Wimmer and Doug Wright were the masters of ceremonies. Even Santa made a special appearance to greet the crowd. This year's tree is the tallest The Gateway has brought in. It's lit by an astonishing 98,000 lights.
