DOWNTOWN AKRON — Akron’s annual holiday lighting ceremony took place Nov. 29. Despite the chilly temperatures, attendees enjoyed the chance to see the city’s Christmas tree illuminated. Master of Ceremonies Jeff Kinsbach, of WONE-FM, is shown at right bottom as the tree is lit.

Fireworks topped off the event, which Natalie Koby and Joe Walder, of Akron, enjoyed with son Liam Koby-Walder, as shown at right top.

Prior to the event, Ron Powers enjoyed taking a ride on Reindeer Run with daughter Liana, 3, as pictured above.
