The Sullivan’s Island tree lighting ceremony and Isle of Palms annual holiday carnival on Dec. 5 and 6 respectively, marked the official start of the holiday season on the islands. At the tree lighting a rousing performance form the Sullivan’s Island Elementary School choir was followed by the lighting of the copious decorations adorning the fire station. A chance to visit with Santa on the steps of the station was a hot ticket, but those who missed out could catch up with him the following evening at Isle of Palms’ carnival, which was spared from the rain this year and proved a very successful evening of good cheer, good fun and good company.

Great job!
