About 200 people gathered outside to participate in the annual lighting of the Christmas tree Thursday night.
After Mayor Tim Sbranti counted down for the lighting of the tree music took over the night. The l Jazz Combo took the stage first and performed three Christmas carols.
Children from the Elementary School Choir followed the Jazz combo to perform five more carols.
The choir then led a community sing-along so that Santa Claus, as promised by Mayor Sbranti, would make an attendance.
