NORTH PARK (KDKA) — Nobody knows exactly when or who started it, but a tree in North Park has been bringing smiles for years.

Whether on foot, on a bike, or in a car, you can’t miss it, and not long ago, John Shumway was walking by when the woman behind it was making some changes.

A walk along North Parks trails is all about navigating the maze of tree trunks, none really more noticeable than the next.

But if you walk the Pie Traynor Loop, one tree does stand out.

This past weekend, the tree transformed ahead of the Christmas holiday season.
