Holiday Tradition Continues Tonight With Tower Lighting

Posted December 2, 1996

— A Raleigh Christmas tradition continued Monday night with the lighting of the WRAL-TV5 broadcast tower on Western Boulevard.

Just before 6:30 p.m., the 300-plus-foot tower came alive with color as thousands of bulbs were illuminated, making it a visual landmark during the holiday season.

The lighting ceremony started at 5 p.m. with the North Stars, a children's chorus from Northwoods Elementary in Cary. News anchor Pam Saulsby and Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel hosted the lighting ceremony.
