HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF)- The Bridge Street Town Centre hosted a special ceremony Friday evening to light Huntsville's official christmas tree and begin the holiday season.

The lighting ceremony included performances by the Huntsville High School show choir, the Harmony Home Music Studio flute and violin choir, as well as a special appearance by Santa Claus himself.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, the tree was lit by Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle as it began to snow at the north end of the centre.

The snow was manufactured, but the crowd still enjoyed the atmosphere.

Following the ceremony, carolers, balloon twisters, and face painters entertained the crowd.
