Crescent City sidewalks were dressed in holiday style last Friday evening. People were passing, children were laughing, as the light parade filled the streets with holiday cheer and the city Christmas tree was set alight.

Making up the parade and creating a glow in the night were a 1929 model A Ford, a Smith River Fire Department truck, the Coast Guard and a group of goats covered in lights.

Organizer Debbie Stover of the Business Improvement District said approximately 300 town folk came to ooooh and aaaah as young Kelsey Thompson waved a magic wand to bring the tree to life. She was chosen in a drawing held by the BID for the event.

Shoulder to shoulder, the crowd seemed excited to kick off the holiday season - even Santa Claus was there.

Everyone was entertained by five different dance groups from the Dance Art Studio. Some dressed in hula skirts and some dressed in Santa suits.

It was a great turnout. Hopefully, it will be even better next year, said Autumn Wallace, Stovers daughter.
