Mayor Jon Mitchell, City Councilors and Santa Claus lined up Thursday night to light the City's Christmas Tree outside the Downtown library.

The event also included a light show outside the library, and a holiday flash mob also made an appearance.

Ward Five Councilor Kerry Winterson took the opportunity to voice support for the small businesses in Downtown New Bedford.....

The tree-lighting was postponed last Saturday because of rain and rescheduled for Thursday night.
