SLIDESHOW: Our Lady of Guadalupe tree lighting was tonight Dec. 7

Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish presented their 8th annual Tree Lighting and caroling celebration on December 7 at 7:00 P.M. at 3401 Myrtle Street SW.

The 60 foot Christmas Tree was lit and the crowd sang Christmas carols.

Each year the event draws hundreds of onlookers to the site near the highest point in the City of Seattle in the High Point neighborhood. The Parish and tree are located at 35th Avenue SW and SW Myrtle St.

People brought non-perishable food items to help neighbors in need. Donation will benefit St. Vincent DePaul food bank.

Immediately following the tree lighting, the new gym was open with crafts for kids, cocoa, cookies and holiday cheer.
