It’s a celebration of the season and hundreds of folks came out to enjoy a nice night on the town.

Police Chief Bob Dowd gave his officers a pep talk before the big event.

There was the music, the band, the festivities and so much more to enjoy.

 Nothing better than coming out a night like this and being with family.

There were so many smiling faces and the excitement of kids everywhere.

It was entertainment for all ages, one of the biggest events of the year and everyone had a great time.
