That holiday glow

Winter festivities draw crowds to annual Community Tree-lighting

Cold weather didn't dampen the enthusiasm of revelers at Monday night's Community Tree-lighting.

Downtown Mountain View was filled with the sweet sounds of carolers, the cold crunch of snowballs, the glow of holiday lights and an eager queue of children (and one police chief) waiting to share their wish lists with Old St. Nick.

Photographer Natalia Nazarova was on the scene to capture some of the holiday magic for voice readers.

Great event but it was not cold, it was balmy...if you dressed right! It was a lovely evening and it was great to see so many families greeting Santa. The Mountain View HS Madrigals were awesome, so impressed with their performance, as always.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
