Watertown Lights Its Tree !

    A festive crowd braved the chilly night air on Public Square today to participate in the annual Christmas Tree Lighting....an event witnessed by many across the state in a live broadcast on YNN !

     Several choral groups, Santa, and the folks at Johnny D's Restaurant combined with organizers and city staff to  make for a fun evening as Watertown plunges headlong into the holiday season.
    Tonights tree lighting features some 15,000 LED lights flashing to music at regular intervals....Many other holiday decorations festoon the city as well.

    Tonights event also provided a chance for the Watertown Urban Mission to collect food stuffs for the needy in a collection organized by Councilwoman Roxanne Burns.
      A special shout out to our friends at YNN who carried the lighting live. It means a lot for Watertown to be on the big stage....
