Here is what you need to know about tonight's FREE event:

4pm:  We will begin broadcasting from in front of the Idaho State Capitol.

107.9 Lite FM elves will be handing out FREE cookies, candy canes, cider and hot chocolate

5pm:  Enjoy music from the 25th Army Band, the Andrus Ambassador Honor Choir from Meridian’s Cecil D. Andrus Elementary School, and the Weiser High School Choir.

5:30 pm:  Governor Butch Otter and Idaho's First Lady Lori Otter will join in the festivities.

At approximately 6 pm the 35 foot blue spruce that was donated by a north end Boise family will be lit with more than 10,000 Christmas lights!   After the tree lighting you can tour the inside of the Capitol all decked out for the holiday season.

 

(On a side note:  I've been having fun trying to capture some creative Christmas pictures to share with you.  I'm a total rookie but I kind of like how this one turned out.)
