The 46th annual Christmas on Third is a month-long Christmas celebration, and it kicked off Monday night in Naples with the much-anticipated tree lighting.

WINK News Anchor Lois Thome and The Weather Authority Meteorologist Zach Maloch had the honor of participating, and WINK carried it live during the 6 p.m. newscast, Tuesday.

Restaurants and shops stayed open late Monday evening to celebrate the Christmas on Third event. The streets were lined with local vendors selling North Pole treats and sweets.

The tree lighting happened around 6:20 p.m.
