ENFIELD: The Christmas Tree in Saint Bernard’s Park in Enfield was lit up to much fanfare from the crowd of close to 300 plus people.
With singing from 40 n’ Change getting those in attendance in the Christmas mood, and then the cry from Municipality of East Hants Town Crier Anita Benedict, the tree was lit up under clear skies.
As soon as it was lit up, many of the youngsters in the crowd all gasped “wow” and then went for a closer look at the tree.
There was mingling around as people tried to get photos of their reflections in many of the ornaments hung on the Christmas tree.
The tree lighting followed a 90 minute Christmas party, where Sparky and Santa showed and 40 n’ Change performed, at the Enfield Fire Hall.
The event was put on by the Enfield Volunteer Fire department and their auxiliary.
