Tree lights mean the season is upon us

Alex Mendoza of Artist Touch Landscaping hangs lights on a tree in front of La Luna restaurant. The season is officially upon us.


You know the holidays are officially here when workers string lights on the sidewalk trees.
That was precisely what Alex Mendoza of Artist Touch Landscaping was doing Friday, a day that in many ways kicks off the holiday season. Today Mendoza was stringing lights in front of La Luna restaurant at West Boston Street and Queen Anne Avenue North. La Luna also put a Santa sleigh scene on its roof. Just about every store along the Ave and beyond was decked out in the holiday spirit. The Christmas tree lot was out at Safeway, shoppers strolled along the Ave with lattes in hand and by 4:30 p.m., the lights Mendoza put up were glowing.
