Wyoming, Luzerne County-One local community is kicking off the Christmas season in a big way. Eyewitness News stopped by the Butler Street Park in Wyoming where the annual Christmas tree lightening was going on. This year's event featured carnival rides, Christmas trees for sale and of course, Santa Claus. It’s year number six for the Christmas tree lightening that seems to bring a lot of joy to the community. Later this month in the borough a children's Christmas party and a holiday house decorating contest are planned. A portion of the proceeds from the Christmas trees sold benefit the Wyoming Recreation board.
