Needham Lights makes spirits bright

[ccfic caption-text format="plaintext"]

Continuing its 64-year tradition, Needham illuminated the town common - and its legendary Blue Tree - on Saturday. This year’s event, the first under the auspices of the Newton-Needham Regional Chamber, featured WCVB’s Julie Loncich, performers from the Plugged In band program, and of course, Santa Claus, among other visitors. Special thanks to Alison Borrelli for photographing the event. www.alisonborrelliphotography.com
