Hundreds gather at riverfront for lighting of the holiday tree


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Hundreds flocked to the riverfront in downtown Wilmington for the annual tradition of lighting the holiday tree.

Folks enjoyed a performance by the Epik Jazz Trio.

At about 6:30, it was time for the big event. After two failed attempts to light the tree, the third time was the charm. Red and green lights beamed from the branches. Even Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus stopped by to spread some Christmas cheer.
