Families gather at the brightly-lit community Christmas tree at the finale of Light Up Monroe, the town Christmas tree lighting festival, Saturday. The tree was lit at 5 p.m., after a full afternoon of downtown activities.
Baby alpacas from local fiber farm Casa De Arboles were dressed up as reindeer and drew the attention of musicians from the Monroe High School band.
