For 15 years, the official lighting of the Christmas tree has been followed by a Christmas parade and a cheerful All Centnick visit. But this year is not the case. Given the restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic, there is no parade or formal tree lighting.
But shortly before this year, the city still erected trees.
“This year was not a normal year,” Mayor Susan Wiggins said in a city news release. “I’m very happy to get up and light the fire for everyone to enjoy. The Christmas tree is a sign of joy and I hope everyone has a great holiday season.”
joy. That is the idea. Everything was wrapped in a 25-foot tree with thousands of lights.
That’s why the city’s public works sector is working — think of them as Santa’s helpers!
Mike Pera in the city has been building trees for 15 years.
“I’m known as Mr. Christmas. I do this because I like to do it. That’s all in a small town. It gets warm to see.”
