Christmas on the Square

Every year at Churchill Square they light up a giant Christmas tree. For me, it is like a kick off to the holiday season. This year we chose to set up and decorate our home on the same day then headed down town for the celebration. We thought we weren’t going to make it in time because we left the house late and I thought they lit the tree up at 6pm. After finding a place to park we made it to the square around 6:15 and were delighted to find out that the tree was still unlit. We got to listen to one band playing music on the stage before the mayor appeared and helped us summon Santa. This year we were pretty far back in the crowd so I couldn’t actually see Santa or anyone that was on stage. But it was okay because I really was there for the tree and the fireworks. The tree looked the same as it did last year but it was still fun with the countdown. But what I really liked this year, is that they tried to set the fireworks off to the music. I don’t remember them doing that last year! Check out some photos and a video of the fireworks below:
