The event was highlighted by the lighting of the Christmas tree on the green, visits with Santa, caroling and a parade of lights courtesy of the volunteer fire department. All American Waste, along with other local business and a dozen fire trucks participated in the 30 minute parade and other events, bringing to life Sesame Street favorites Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, Cookie Monster and fan favorite Elmo.

The event also highlighted Small Business Saturday, which encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Local merchants were in attendance prior to the ceremony to meet with people attending from the community. The idea of small business Saturday, which started in 2010, has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before.
