People gathered Sunday at League Park for the annual tree lighting. City staff members were joined by characters from the Bay Area Houston Ballet and Theatre’s Nutcracker ballet to light the tree, which was decorated by the League City Garden Club with more than 600 ornaments.
Rainy weather delayed the annual lighting by a day, and city officials moved it from the front of the Helen Hall Library to League Park to allow for more social distancing and enhanced coronavirus precautions.
City officials handed out 2020 commemorative holiday ornaments and served hot chocolate. They also accepted new, unwrapped toys on behalf of Interfaith Caring Ministries. The toys will be distributed to families in need in League City.
