The parade starts at 6:30 p.m.in downtown Youngstown.

"I think it takes us all back to when we were children and had the first experience with our parents and putting the decorations on the tree, and that exciting moment when you plug it in and all the lights brighten up", Garcia said.

Wilson was pleased with the success of Friday's festivities.

As for the Martin family, they plan to continue attending the tree lighting ceremony in the future, noting they try to participate in all downtown Sydney events throughout the year.
