SPRINGFIELD — The Springfield Tree Lighting ceremony lit up the lakefront on Canfield Road and the Vincent J. Mealy Memorial Gazebo, shown above, Dec. 6.

The annual event welcomes the holiday season with entertainment and a visit from Santa, who turns on the lights of the holiday tree. This year, new animated displays were added along the lake. One of those displays is pictured at right.

Springfield residents Paul Hathaway and his 3-year-old son, Joseph, are pictured bottom right talking to Santa about their holiday wishes.

Area residents were invited to celebrate the season by singing carols led by the Lakemore United Methodist Church choir.
