Attendees sang Christmas carols and enjoyed hot cocoa and cookies before the tree was lit, then Santa arrived by fire truck to meet with children and hear their Christmas wishes. Mayor Mark Lauretti spoke at the ceremony.

The event is organized by Roger Spinelli of RJS Designs LLC, with help from the Huntington Volunteer Fire Company and local businesses.
