A crowd gathered as District 67 students prepared to light up the tree with Lake Forest Mayor George Pandaleon.

Six District 67 students, who are new to the Lake Forest community, were chosen to join Lake Forest Mayor George Pandaleon as they "flipped the switch" to light the tree at the 37th annual Tree Lighting Ceremony in Market Square on Nov. 26.

Elementary school principals selected the students in a nod to the many new families who have recently moved to Lake Forest. Miguel Rosales and Dylan Anderson represented Cherokee Elementary; Keegan and Quinlan Trick were chosen by Everett Elementary School; and George and Lucy Wilson did the honors on behalf of Sheridan Elementary.

The Tree Lighting Ceremony was part of a daylong Friends of Lake Forest Parks and Recreation Foundation community event that also featured ice-sculpting, live entertainment, and a visit from Santa Claus himself.
