UPPER WEST SIDE (WABC) -- A holiday tradition was renewed Monday night on Manhattan's Upper West Side. It's the 16th year for the Winter's Eve celebration at Lincoln Square.

WABC-TV is the co-sponsor.

The celebration features music, food, and the annual lighting of the tree. The Chapin family will headline this year's music.

Eyewitness News Anchor Sade Baderinwa led the ceremony to light up the tree, a 27-foot white fur with ornaments made by students throughout the city.

Three dozen area restaurants are participating, selling small plates of food for $1 to $4.
