Meridian Lights Way for Christmas

Every year this is an exciting time as Merry Meridian is in full swing. It brings the lighting of Meridian's official Christmas tree at Dumont Plaza.

Not only is the tree burning brightly now, but the occasion was blessed by musical entertainment for those who bundled up to attend the event.

"We had some very special guests tonight for the lighting," said Mayor Cheri Barry. "We had the Palmer Home for Children, who came and sang Christmas songs, from Columbus, Miss., because of this season we are about to begin. Also, we had MIDD Meridian, who made Christmas light buttons for our Challenger League Tree, who helped light the tree."
