ELKHART — Mayor Rod Roberson performed the countdown as the city lit its Christmas tree at Central Park on Monday evening.

For safety reasons, the public had not been invited to the tree lighting, which was livestreamed on the city’s Facebook page for those who still wanted to watch. Roberson spoke briefly before the countdown, focusing on how the COVID-19 pandemic has made 2020 a tough year but that this is the season to be thankful.
