Hazel Haspela and her father, Kevin, share a moment beneath the bright lights of the downtown Christmas tree Friday at Second and State streets. Several hundred people turned out to see the lights, and greet Santa Claus. The parade and tree lighting had been postponed one week after the snowfall on Dec. 6. “It was great to see the community come together,” Chamber Executive Director Mike Glover said. “We really appreciate the city’s efforts to get the street ready and providing vehicles for the parade.” The crowd went through three “false starts” in the light countdown, as contractor Hollywood Lights worked to connect the power at the scheduled 7 p.m.
