Tree lighting launches holiday season

Second annual ceremony draws hundreds to event at arts center

The second annual Lone Tree tree lighting ceremony rang in the holiday season Nov. 30, part of the city's week-long slate of festivities.

Just as snow began to fall, Mayor Jackie Millet, joined by the Lone Tree City Council and Douglas County Commissioner-elect Abe Laydon, a Lone Tree resident, counted down the final moments to the lighting of the tree at the Lone Tree Arts Center.

S'mores, live reindeer, dancing Christmas trees and music rounded out another ceremony welcoming the winter holidays. The event kicked off a weekend of events known as Lone Tree Merry Days, which included festive crafts and cookie decorating and ended Dec. 1 with the second annual Schweiger Ranch Austrian Christmas and Christkindl market.

Lou and Pat Martire brought their grandchildren and said they wanted to make the tree lighting a holiday tradition.

“The overall joy of gathering with friends at an event like this — there's nothing better than this,” Lou Martire said.
