Although the weather outside was frightful, Chicago Heights City Hall was delightful as the City celebrated the season with its annual tree lighting ceremony! Mayor Gonzalez and wife Carmen greeted families outside on Wednesday evening and introduced the concert choirs from School District 170 and Bloom High School. The choirs sang their renditions of popular Christmas carols, getting everyone in the holiday spirit. Santa arrived by fire truck with his elves and joined Mayor Gonzalez and his helpers to flip the switch illuminating City Hall with beautiful lights. Following the tree lighting, families were treated to hot chocolate and cookies inside City Hall while children had a chance to chat with Santa Claus about their wishlist!
