Danville livestreams Christmas tree lighting

Though Danville’s Christmas parade, which was planned to be a “reverse” parade Dec. 5 where people could drive town Main Street to view floats, was canceled due to a lack of entries, the city’s Christmas tree lighting still took place Dec. 4. It drew a small group of mainly city workers because of COVID-19, but the event was also livestreamed on the city’s Facebook page, as well as the Heart of Danville’s page, so more people could watch the tree shine. The lighting took place at Weisiger Park beside the Boyle County Courthouse.
