CASPER, Wyo. – The 2019 holiday season is in full swing after the annual Community Christmas Tree lighting and the Downtown Christmas Parade on Saturday night.

Revelers bundled up against the frigid temperatures and below-zero wind chills for the festivities.

Like last year, the community tree is surrounded by an ice skating rink, which opened for the season on Friday.
