CANTON — The lights are on at the large Christmas tree in downtown Canton, marking the beginning of the holiday season in the city.

Canton Mayor Bill Grant, with Santa Claus, lighted the tree Wednesday night at Cannon Park. Families enjoyed carols from local students, and warmed up with hot cocoa from Cherokee High School's Beat Out Cancer club.
