Lone Tree lights up the night

Hundreds brave chilly weather to kick off the holiday season

Posted

Chilly temperatures didn't dampen the enthusiasm of the Lone Tree residents who turned out by the hundreds to watch the first official lighting of the Christmas tree at the Lone Tree Arts Center. Party-goers chanted backward from 10 to one, and applauded as Lone Tree Mayor Jackie Millet and city council members flipped the switch to illuminate the tree and kick off the holiday season.

The Lone Tree Arts Center Guild provided festive headbands of reindeer antlers for attendees, and The Denver Dolls entertained the crowd with their musical talents. Santa Claus was on hand to visit with the little ones, and hear their holiday wishes, while a cocoa bar helped keep the hands and stomachs of festival-goers warm. Roasting marshmallows over firepits and making S'mores were crowd favorites.

Many residents got out of the cold and enjoyed the art hanging inside the arts center, while others gathered around outdoor fire pits in the grounds surrounding the center. Live reindeer made an appearance and carolers sang throughout the evening.
