Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Downtown Fargo is kicking off the holiday season tonight.

The 2nd annual Lighting of the Trees starts tonight at 7, and local businesses are hoping it will be fun for the whole family.

Storefronts are decorated and open late to create a holiday atmosphere, complete with hot chocolate.

It's the first event in Downtown Community Partnership's "Holiday Shopping is Fun Again" series.

Vice Chair of DCP Cari Luchau sees tonight being reminiscent of the ‘50s and ‘60s.

Luchau: “We want to bring back that nostalgic feeling of shopping is fun you don't have the rush of the traffic in the mall out in that area and you can stroll by the windows and see the beautiful displays and shop local.”

The downtown shopping store open house will be open until 9pm tonight.
