Evansville Christmas Tree lighting ceremony kicks off the holiday season
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The City of Evansville kicked off the holiday season Thursday night with a Christmas tree lighting.
Dozens of people showed up to see the tree, which was cut down in Posey County and brought to Evansville about two weeks ago.
It’s a 32-foot-tall Norway Spruce and is illuminated with around 25,000 lights.
“I think I’m about completing my season of lasts and this is probably more emotional one then many others just because its the city Christmas tree,” says Mayor Lloyd Winnecke.
You can watch it light up in the video player below.
