Gallery: Jerome Lights Up The Mountain 2013
Jerome marks the holiday season with their annual "Light Up the Mountain" festivities, held this year on Saturday, November 30. The Jerome community, and a multitude of tourists, flocked to Upper Park to mark the holiday season with the lighting of the park Christmas lights. Adding to the holiday ambiance were hundreds of luminaria placed along sidewalks from downtown to the old high school building. Students from the Mingus High School choir and A.T.O.R.T. theatre added to the celebration by singing carols throughout downtown while the Mingus Jazz Band performed "inside" the Bartlett Hotel. At 6:30 pm sharp, Santa led the festivities, throwing the switch to the cheers of those below before riding away in the town's vintage 1928 fire truck.
