Knoxville ushers in Christmas with celebration of lights

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Christmas has officially begun in Downtown Knoxville.

With a bang, the Regal Celebration of Lights officially kicked-off the five weeks of Christmas in the City. The night was full of holiday cheer, with the lighting of the Christmas tree in Krutch park, fireworks and a visit from Santa.

WATE 6 On Your Side is a proud sponsor of the Regal Celebration of Lights. Good Morning Tennessee anchors Bo Williams and Tearsa Smith was master of ceremonies for the event.
