Thursday night Bridgeport celebrated the holidays with a tree lighting and visit from Santa.   Over ten thousand lights were lit and hundreds showed up to enjoy the music celebrating Christmas, Chanukah a and Kwanza along with Mike Bellamy and Tony Reno from WICC who were guests of honor.  The official Bridgeport website announced a “Holiday Tree Lighting” which is why I chided the mayor in my on camera interview.  There was so much fun a four minute video does not do it justice; I will posted a more extended video over the weekend with much more singing and celebrating!
