Residents and visitors crowd around the tree to take photos after it was lit for the season at Sixth Avenue Plaza on Friday night.

Things turned festive Friday in downtown Longmont for the annual tree lighting ceremony in Sixth Avenue Plaza. Presented by the Longmont Downtown Creative District, the annual event kicked off the holidays with a Holidays Around the World skit from Patrick Paws of LMNO Puppets, caroling and a holiday sing-along, crafts, snacks, drinks, goodie bags, and of course an appearance by Santa.

The holiday festivities will continue on Dec. 8 with Longmont Lights, which starts with music and activities at Winter Wonderland from 3 to 5 p.m. at St. Stephen’s Plaza and is capped off by the city-sponsored Parade of Lights that starts at 5 p.m. For more information, visit downtownlongmont.com/calendar/holiday-events .
