BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The Christmas season is officially underway in Bakersfield with Saturday’s tree lighting in front of Mechanics Bank Arena.

Saturday’s event featured caroling, a nativity scene and very special guest: Santa Claus.

“Merry Christmas, Bakersfield. Let’s celebrate the reason for the season, together,” Goh said.
