Orono lights up the night for the holidays

Written by

ORONO - Some people in Orono getting into the holiday spirit Monday evening.

 

The town held their annual "Light Up the Night" event, which included a Christmas tree lighting at the University Inn.

 

Monday's holiday season celebration also included some help from the Orono Fire Department, who brought Santa Claus to the event.

 

"It's a great time of the year," said Orono Fire Dept. Lt. Kevin Peary, who helped give Santa a lift, "this gets you in the spirit a little bit more ... do some caroling as they're doing in the background, just have a good night."

 

Some parts of Light the Night, like the fireworks show, were canceled because of the weather.

 

But kids there told our news team they still had fun, and their favorite part was the hot cocoa.
