Holiday Concert and tree lighting kick off season

Posted

A large crowd gathered around a Christmas tree more than two-dozen feet tall at the Holiday Concert and tree lighting Dec. 1 in front of the Englewood Civic Center.

The festivities at 1000 Englewood Parkway included a concert by Englewood Schools students, and city officials made appearances at the event. Former Mayor Randy Penn, Mayor Pro Tem Rita Russell and other Englewood city councilmembers stood alongside children as they counted down to the tree’s lighting. Santa and Mrs. Claus attended the event, which featured a photo booth. The Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce and City of Englewood put on the event.

Families posed and took photos in front of the tree, including the Iniguez family, who lives in Englewood.

Sofia Iniguez, 8, was bundled up with a purple Christmas hat.

Her favorite part of the event?

“When they turn on the tree,” she said.
