Superior, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) -- The city of Superior's Christmas staple is bigger than ever this year.

Mayor Bruce Hagen lit up the city's Christmas tree –with the help of some friends – during a special tree lighting ceremony Wednesday night.

Four lucky kids helped the Mayor push the button which illuminated the giant pine.

Standing 50–feet tall and dressed in nearly 1,600 lights...the tree is brighter than ever.

The big man in red, Santa Clause himself also made a special guest appearance.

Both young and old stayed warm by drinking hot chocolate and dancing to holiday music.
