The downtown block of Three Rivers was filled with shoppers, carolers, wagon rides, and more this weekend as the annual Christmas Around Town event kicked off the holiday season.

Perennial favorite activities included the tree lighting in the mural mall, cookie decorating and crafts, pop-up vendors, and visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Riviera Theatre. New this year was a Holiday Spectacular on Friday night, featuring a number of performances by local talent. The weekend’s events were planned by the Three Rivers Downtown Development Authority, headed by Executive Director Cameron Mains.
