City of Yakima Holds Annual "Light Up The Plaza" Event

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA.- It feels like Thanksgiving is barely over, but the City of Yakima is already prepping for Christmas.


Friday evening they celebrated with their annual lighting of the community Christmas tree in Millennium Plaza. Hundreds of people gathered to celebrate the holiday season and the city told us it's a  wonderful tradition and they see so many from the community come out each year.

"This is all about family and community, it's about celebrating the Christmas season and spirit and having a little fun," Economic Development Manager, Sean Hawkins, told us.    

The event wrapped up around 10, but don't worry if you weren't able to make it the city has lots more planned for the month of December.
