With colder temperatures making it feel like winter, the annual Grand Illumination took place over Thanksgiving weekend at Wintergreen Resort. The celebration marks the official start of the Christmas season. Our BRL Mountain Photographer Paul Purpura said it was a very large crowd.

A large crowd turned out for the Grand Illumination this past Friday night - November 23, 2012 at Wintergreen Resort. Some makeshift snow added just the right touch for the night's event.
