Saturday night was filled with holiday spirit as over 3,000 young and old gathered for the 33rd Annual Fraser Fir Christmas Tree Lighting sponsored by Carter County Bank.

The crowd was entertained by different groups of singers as well as the Happy Valley band ensemble who honored America by playing the National Anthem.

Major Margaret Eggers was the special guest for the countdown and flipping of the switch.

After the lighting, the crowd moved to the Covered Bridge Park for the Kid’s Candy Cane Quest and to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus.
