Dan­bury kicked off the hol­i­day season with the an­nual “Light the Lights” event, pre­sented by Ci­tyCen­ter Dan­bury. Fol­low­ing mu­si­cal num­bers by the St. Joseph School choir and the Dan­bury High School Madri­gal Singers, Mayor Mark Boughton counted down with the crowd and threw the switch to light the hol­i­day lights through­out down­town Dan­bury. With the trees in the Pub­lic Li­brary Plaza aglow, the crowd moved to the edge of Main Street to watch the pa­rade of firetrucks, dec­o­rated with twin­kling lights, and the ar­rival of Santa Claus.
