Omaha, NE- The Gene Leahy Mall project that started back in March is 98% complete.
On Monday, the fence came down, crews filled the pond and Parks Director Brook Bench says they just have minor things to finish up.
But most importantly, everything is ready for Thursday's Kick off to the Holiday Lights Festival. "We did our first test today at 1 o'clock, everything worked. We'll do it again tomorrow and Wednesday and hopefully everything will go good for the Mayor on Thursday," says Bench.
The lights for the festival will be switched on Thanksgiving Day at 6 p.m.
