Great weather spurred thousands to attend the City's Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting. Everyone enjoyed the event, seeing Santa, and kicking of the holiday season.
Local choral groups entertained and downtown businesses were busy.
I stopped in The Crystal for a Tom and Jerry and MC'd the event.
This was my last lighting of the tree as Mayor, but I look forward to being there next year as a spectator. The Christmas spirit really revs up following an evening like this.
