Christmas tree lighting at the park

The 50-foot tree was lit tonight at Locust Street Park as part of the Fourth Annual Columbia Winterfest celebration. The event was dedicated to Bert and Peanut Burkert, both of whom passed away this year. Cimarron Properties, the Slaymaker Group, Express Printing, and Union Station Grill sponsored.


 Families enjoyed hot chocolate, music, and Santa Claus during hte celebration.

 Our Lady of the Angels choir sang Christmas carols.

 Santa (Walter Bosch) worked the crowd.

 The tree stood forth in its illuminated glory

400 luminaries lined the sidewalks, thanks to the Columbia varsity cheerleading squad (and one honorary member) and the baseball team.
