Hundreds attend tree lighting

Hamilton Elementary School first- and second-graders sing during the City of Hamilton’s Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony.

HAMILTON - The City of Hamilton kicked off the holiday season Tuesday night, Nov. 19, during its Christmas Tree Lighting.
Hamilton Mayor Bob Page told the Journal Record he estimates that 600 to 800 people attended the city’s second official Christmas Tree Lighting event.
Page said the city hosted a lighting three years ago and only a handful of people attended. Last year, the city invited several youth performance groups to the event to participate, resulting in hundreds of people gathering at city hall.
This year, the trend continued and parking at Hamilton City Hall was completely full and adjacent parking lots at CIS Home Loans and Fred’s Pharmacy were being used. Cars we’re also parked along 10th Avenue West.
