NOW: Downtown streets fill with cheer at Waukesha’s Night of Lights

WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Waukesha.

CBS 58 attended Friday night's tree lighting at Lantern Stroll. A lot of people came out to mark this season in Waukesha, and the snow came down almost on cue, as the downtown streets filled with holiday cheer.

The tree is lit, and the spirit's up on Main Street. In what seemed like a scene from your favorite Christmas movie, people followed Santa Claus and his jingle bells, marching together, with scheduled stops to sing Christmas carols loud enough for all to hear. 

"You know what the weather's like, and we got hundreds of people down here to celebrate this, so Waukesha's a community that comes out," said Waukesha Mayor Shawn Reilly. 

The holiday cheer keeps going in Waukesha all month long. The Christmas Parade is coming up Sunday, Dec. 3. Every Saturday, they've got horse drawn carriage rides. On Saturday, Dec. 16, there's an Ugly Sweater Day all across the city.
