Crowd Cheers on Lighting of Downtown’s Christmas Tree


SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — “Three, two, one — happy holidays!”

Another tradition lit up the sky in Springfield.

Park Central’s Christmas-tree lighting ceremony took place Saturday evening.

Along with performances, Santa’s mailbox was available for kiddos to send their wishes to the North Pole.

 And the library held story time throughout the night.

This event kicks off the downtown Festival of Lights which includes horse-drawn carriage rides, free ice skating and holiday shows.
