A Fun Night For All.
No one can blame families that were ready to leave with their cold children, but several had planned to skip the parade and join in the festivities with the tree lighting. It was 29 degrees outside, and the decision was made to light the tree up early. No one left disappointed with the free cocoa and cookies, ice skating, and the all-around festive spirit tonight in Downtown Anderson. The decision to light the tree early was made with good intentions for the families with little ones in the cold, and although we missed it for the Facebook live, we had a good time too.
We are sorry we did not get the actual lighting on Facebook Live. We did get the parade!
