The event turned out a big crowd as people young and old came to the riverfront to enjoy some Christmas music and family fun.

Glenn Wilson came downtown with his loved ones. He says Christmas is about family.

“Having our family together on thanksgiving and Christmas is my greatest joy,” Wilson said.

And finally the moment people were waiting for, little by little, the tree lights illuminated and the massive tree sparkled green and red.

There were smiles all around and the Christmas spirit was in the air.
