LIGHT IT UP TONIGHT!

Downtown gets awash in its first Christmas-glow evening of the holiday season tonight, with the “A Very Derrick Christmas” lighting of the derricks downtown. Shopping, food and fun start at 3 p.m. today, performances at the intersection of Kilgore and Main Streets begin at 5:45, and then the main event, the lighting ceremony, at 6:55, followed by the Kilgore College Rangerettes performance to close things out. Come out, see friends and family and begin the holiday season in style. And see our special Shop Local! section inside, pages 3B through 6B, for the performance schedule and holiday shopping tips.
