PHOTOS: Oh Christmas Tree...
Fairfax City gathers in Old Town to welcome the holiday season.
Candles, carols and holiday cheer helped welcome the season on Saturday's Christmas tree lighting in Kitty Pozer Garden.
City families bundled up to attend the 2010 Festival of Lights and Carols. The day-long event started with a Chick-Fil-A lunch with Santa and a performace by Sidney Lanier Middle School students, and it ended with a tree-lighting and historic holiday tour around Old Town.
The Jubil-Aires and Good News Ringers sang carols and rang holiday bells for the Christmas tree lighting.
