Main Street was filled with a sea of people for the count down with Santa and retired fire chief Al Galinelli during the Warren Holiday Festival tree lighting ceremony on Friday night. In a blink the lights were turned on and hundreds were awed and took pictures of the beautiful sight as the ceremony came to a close.
Christopher Lambert and the Mt. Hope High School band led Santa up Baker St. and down Main St. to the tree lighting ceremony. Santa waved to the crowd from atop a Warren fire engine blazing with lights.
Warren firemen helped the jolly old elf down from the engine as he made his way through crowd to the town hall steps where the count down began.
The Mt. Hope High School vocal ensemble sang Christmas carols during the event.
Before the tree lighting dozens of events took place in and around Baker Street.
Circus Dynamics wowed the crowd with their fire shows on Narragansett Way.
Santa saw hundreds of boys and girls at the Fire Museum with Sparky the Fire Dog. And Bianca Cabral sang carols and original songs at the Masonic Temple.
