After the Lighted Christmas Parade, everyone gathered back at the Court house square to see the lighting of the Montgomery County Christmas Tree.

Before lighting the tree, Durrett asked for 10 seconds of silence to remember the two 101st Airborne Division pilots that were killed in a helicopter crash outside of Fort Campbell on December 2nd.
