City officials wished those attending a happy holiday and assisted with the tree lighting ceremonies. All of the trees in front of the City Hall along Valley Boulevard and in the city parking lot were decorated with colorful lights. The lights were turned on with a giant switch that was pulled by a student and the council members.
Local cities such as Rosemead, Alhambra, Monterey Park and San Gabriel typically conduct holdiay programs to kick-off the local shopping ceremonies.
