Photos: Annual Christmas tree lighting in Greenport

KATHARINE SCHROEDER PHOTO | The holiday season began Friday night in Greenport with the annual Christmas tree lighting.

Greenport Village held its annual tree lighting in Mitchell Park Friday evening. Students from Greenport School sang Christmas carols and Father Tom Murray of Saint Agnes R.C. Church gave his blessing to the crowd.

Four-year-old Fiona Wood of Greenport had the honor of flipping the switch to light the tree as Santa Claus arrived by fire truck to greet the excited children.
