The post-Thanksgiving weekend was a time for relaxation and recovery for most Americans, but the Leonardtown, Maryland Volunteer Fire Department was busy with preparing for the annual Christmas on the Square and Tree Lighting ceremony, according to The Bay Net.
This year's event was estimated to have the largest crowd in the history of the event, as families and children poured into the center of town for a series of events and to see the many exhibits that were present.
One of the main attractions was the vintage John Deere tractor display, as local children were able to see the various models of the farm equipment that were present, according to the news source.
Along with the used John Deere tractors, children flocked to the petting zoo, the classic car display and gingerbread house construction area. Live performances by local bands capped off the initial celebration, which was followed by a parade through the town.
The Leonardtown Volunteer Fire Department takes place in many Christmas celebrations, as the members travel around the town each weekend during December to set up for events, according to the organization's website.
