The first event to kick-off the 'Festival of Trees' was held Saturday night in St. Albans.
It's the annual tree lighting and bonfire in Taylor Park.
Santa and Mrs. Claus also made an appearance.
Community members said it's a fun event they look forward to attending every year.
"We have a 7-year-old who's kind of excited to see the trees, and the bonfire, and have some hot cider and donuts, hang out with the people in the community," said Heidi Anderson, who lives in St. Albans.
The Festival of Lights continues through December 6th.
