Lighting The Tree

Every town has a tree lighting ceremony this time of year.
Few are better than the tree lighting event in
They lit their tree on Sunday night, and the event was wonderful.

 They had a parade for the kids...

 Olaf, Minions, Elves and Reindeer!

 A train ride for the little ones, 
although it appears Santa did not get that memo...

 Olaf, up close, he is one of my favorites.

 The Long Branch High School dancers were excellent,

 as was their color guard.

 It's so cool to see the kids today with so much school spirit.

 Check out that beautiful scarf keeping the hubs warm,

 and Santa looking me straight in the eyes.

 They lit the tree...

with lot's of Christmas songs and background music.

This was a great way to kick off the holiday season!

Didn't realize that tree lighting was such a big deal! And yes, that's a very nice scarf.

Oh, I loved, loved this one. I haven't ever been to a winter parade and this looked so fun. I like the minion myself best. The tree is beautiful and I loved the the photo of it. Best of all I liked that scarf around your hubby's neck; awesome. Then of course, the picture of the two of you priceless.
I liked to enjoy your fun through your photo taking skills. Hugs for you both!

I love all your photo's, but especially the last one.

Our grandchildren had fun at their local towns Christmas festivities at the weekend. The older one took part in the parade dressed as a reindeer - special times.

Happy December wishes

All the best Jan
