NORTH AUGUSTA, SC (WFXG) -

Hundreds were in the Christmas spirit over in North Augusta as they came together for the city's annual tree lighting!

They gathered at Calhoun Park for a night of food, fun and festivities.

The North Augusta High School Band played holiday tunes while families took pictures in front of the lights and visited with Santa Claus.

Fox 54 caught up with a mother-daughter duo who've lived in the town their entire lives and decided to get in on the fun after hearing about it on our newscast.

"I liked the lights, the music, the pizza, the happiness that the season brings and seeing everyone with their families," said Angela Sanders.

North Augusta Councilman Fletcher Dickert's two daughters had the honor of flipping the switch to light up the tree this year.
