‘Tis the Season
Posted on: December 5, 2014
Fun was had by all at the annual Laurel Christmas Tree Lighting at Pinehurst Park. People of all ages came to sing carols, have refreshments and watch the tree light up on Thursday night. State senator Gary Staples was on hand as well as EDA President Mitch Stennett, and Chamber of Commerce director Larkin Simpson. This year was headlined by the Highland Baptist Church Choir with various Christmas classics and some new favorite tunes. President of Laurel Main Street, Brad Kent, welcomed the crowd while Mayor Johnny read Scripture telling of the birth of Jesus. As the tree was lit, the crowd cheered; it was a perfect evening. The Laurel High School Choir graced attenders with a couple of more carols and the dancers of the Laurel Ballet Academy took to the grand stage. Thank you, Laurel, for making this another night to remember in beautiful historic Downtown Laurel!
