Russell Jones, Kevin Fitch who drove out to Fishersville, VA to help harvest the 30-foot, 30 year old Norway Spruce for the City's Grand Illumination Celebration, install the tree on the Downtown Mall and afterwards, they strung over 20,000 lights and tested to make sure it would be "merry and bright." for the official lighting at the event.
The Grand illumination Staff, Sponsors and Volunteers is grateful for their time, effort and dedication to making this event illuminating every year.
