Many brave rain and cold for the lighting of the Christmas tree at the Gateway Saturday, Nov. 20. Those attending were also treated with cookies, hot chocolate and a concert by singer Peter Breinholt.

The Gateway mall's centerpiece Christmas tree was unveiled Saturday to oohs and aahs from children. People also cheered Santa Claus, who appeared during the event in Salt Lake City.
