Since 1915, Destin has celebrated Christmas. On December 5, the city continued the tradition with its annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony. About 100 people gathered to sing carols, donate toys and even visit with the man in the red suit. Performances from Dance Elite, Noah's Ark preschool, Destin Elementary Chorus and City Councilman Cyron Marler rounded out the evening of festivities.
