The Toledo Zoo celebrated the lighting of its “Big Tree” Friday for the holiday season. This year’s tree is an 85-foot Norway spruce decorated with more than 35,000 LED bulbs. Four-year-old Noah, accompanied by his father, Sgt. Brandon Lee with the Ohio National Guard's 323rd Military Police Company, helped throw the switch. See photos from this event above and a video below.
