BOSTON (CBS) – Macy’s kicked off the shopping season in Boston with its annual tree lighting ceremony Friday night.

Mayor Menino was joined by singer Joey McIntyre, former Patriots star Tedy Bruschi, Bruins forward Jordan Caron and hundreds of others for the annual event in Downtown Crossing.

The tree is nearly 60 feet tall and has more than 10,000 multi-colored lights. It was donated by Debra Jefferson, winner of Macy’s Perfect Christmas Tree contest. It was cut from her yard in Groton, Massachusetts.
