Photos: Surprise colored lights illuminate Bristol ·

When Santa and his elves, including Miss Fourth of July Olivia Borgia and Little Miss Fourth of July Angela Pirri, hit the switch and turned on the Christmas lights during the annual Grand Illumination, colored lights sparkled and shined from the giant tree in front of the Burnside building on Saturday night.

An enormous crowd gathered around a taped off area in front of town hall to bring in the Christmas season. Colt Andrews, Guiteras, Rockwell school choruses and the Mt. Hope Vocal Ensemble performed Holiday songs and Extensions School of Dance performed on Hope Street, before Santa took the stage to turn on the lights.

Halsey Herreshoff read Twas the Night Before Christmas at St. Michael's Church after the event.
