CLEARFIELD – A large crowd gathered to kick off the holiday season Saturday evening at the Courthouse Square in downtown Clearfield.
Homemade ornaments were hung on the community Christmas tree, and Clearfield firefighters decorated the higher branches.
Afterward, Clearfield Mayor Jim Schell led a countdown to the light-up of the tree for this holiday season.
During the celebration, the crowd was treated to special performances by the High Voltage Youth Show Choir and the Clearfield Choral Society, both from the Clearfield Arts Studio Theatre Inc. (CAST).
The Clearfield Area Junior-Senior High School choir also performed a holiday musical selection under the direction of Andrew Rothrock.
The Clearfield Revitalization Corp. (CRC) hosted the celebration. Light refreshments were available, and the Salvation Army of Clearfield served hot cocoa.
