So what brought this crowd to downtown Chicago?
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, at least in Chicago.
People lined the side walk of State Street to see what the theme of Macy's holiday windows would be this year. '
The store unveiled windows that celebrate the Joffrey Ballet's 20th anniversary production of "The Nutcracker".
The display lasts through the holiday season. The nine windows contain animated figures telling the famous story.
The windows will be on display through January 6.
