The Annual tree-lighting ceremony went off without a hitch, despite the wind and relative cool weather.

After a brief concert and sing-a-long led by the choir of the Boys & Girls Club and the Desert Hot Springs High School choir, the Desert Hot Springs families waited as the rest of the crowd to light the Holiday Tree to kick off the Holiday Season.

Finally, George Fisher of the Community Culture Affair Commission with the help of the folks and a big countdown lid up the towering 30 foot, Christmas Tree at Pierson Blvd. and Palm Drive.
