Crowd gathers for Christmas tree lighting at Deer Park outlets

Christmas arrived early at Tanger Outlets in Deer Park, where a large crowd turned out Saturday for a tree lighting.

There was music, activities and of course visits with Santa.

The day ended with a big cheer when the tree was lit up with all kinds of colors.

In addition to the holiday decorations, there is also an ice skating rink that will open when the weather permits.
