City of Katy kicks off holiday season with traditional tree lighting
Katy residents kicked off the holiday season with a ceremony lighting the Christmas tree in front of Katy City Hall.
The ceremony was held Thursday, Nov. 29, with Mayor Chuck Brawner and his wife Marcy waiting for the arrival of Santa Claus to help light the tree.
After the ceremony, Santa sat in front of the towering tree and took the opportunity to listen to children who told St. Nick what they wanted for Christmas. The scene was decorated with presents and poinsettias.
Area school choirs helped ring in the season with their performances.
