Annual event drew crowd of all ages for parade and Christmas tree lighting

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – especially at Uptown Shopping Centre where the annual Christmas tree lighting and parade drew a crowd of all ages to welcome the holiday season.

Looping the boulevard, the parade included Christmas elves, gingerbread people, snowmen and the big guy himself – Old Saint Nick.

The annual Light Up drew folks back to Town Plaza where the 54-foot tall Christmas tree was illuminated.
