Raleigh Event: Winterfest 2011

Trying to tie up a bunch of loose ends this week before I head out for the holidays, so forgive my unusual lack of long introductions. ;) ¬†Here’s a quick glimpse into Raleigh’s 2011 Winterfest that I was kindly asked to photograph by my friends at the Downtown Raleigh Alliance. :) It was a beautiful evening! It was sad to see Mayor Meeker light the tree for the last time, but we welcome in Raleigh’s new mayor, Nancy McFarlane, with open arms. :)
