A choir sang Christmas songs during the tree lighting ceremony along McGregor in Fort Myers Friday evening.

Families told us why it’s a beloved Christmas tradition for Southwest Florida.

“It’s enlightening,” said Louisa Washburn. “Hearing the chorus and the lights come on, it just feels like Christmas! It’s all warm, you’re here with your family; this is how Christmas really should be.”
