Annual Mayor's Holiday Lighting marks beginning of Christmas season

Posted

Covered in a fresh blanket of snow, O'Brien Park became the center of holiday festivities Nov. 29 during the annual Mayor's Holiday Lighting.

Lights strewn about the Parker park and the Christmas tree lit up at once following a countdown from the crowd. The snow reflected the lights beaming from the trees to give the park its own warm allure.

Mayor Mike Waid hosted the event and welcomed the Parker Chorale to ring in the ceremonies with a rendition of "Silent Night." Choirs from Ponderosa, Legend, Lutheran and Chaparral high schools shared the stage for holiday caroling as the Parker Chorale yielded to a spot on downtown Mainstreet for a more intimate experience. The Colorado School of Dance performed a dance from "The Nutcracker."

Of all ages and from all over the South Metro area, people bundled in their parkas and beanies – many sweating out an out-the-door line at Fika Coffee House – to welcome the Christmas season after another Black Friday.
