CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago's official Christmas tree is at its new home in Millennium Park.

It was delivered overnight, and the move forced part of Michigan Avenue to close.

The 63-foot spruce donated from a Northlake family will be lit Nov. 24 for the first time in Millennium Park instead of Daley Plaza.

A section of the northbound Michigan Avenue closed Tuesday night to allow for the delivery.
