Riverhead Town kicked off holiday season celebrations Saturday with a tree-lighting event at the town square.

The event, hosted by Riverhead Townscape and the Riverhead Chamber of Commerce, started in the afternoon with a puppet show, holiday crafts for kids and musical performances, culminating with the arrival of Santa Claus and the lighting of the Colorado blue spruce tree in the town square.
