A Homewood Public Works crew decorated the big evergreen tree in Irwin Park on Monday, getting it ready for the holiday season and for the Holiday Lights in Homewood festival Friday night.
Mike Wathen, Elias Barbosa, David Becker and Adolfo Villagomez had the tree looking festive by early afternoon.
The festival is scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday. The tree lighting ceremony will be 7 p.m.
