Town workers continued a tradition going back some three decades Monday, hanging holiday lights along the Beeline Highway and State Route 260.

Wes Chapman, Thad Leiting and Houston Tatum used a bucket truck to hang lighted bells, snowflakes, candles, trees and candy canes from the street lights.

Town of Payson Streets Operations Manager Tim Ryden said there were several others involved who helped deliver the decorations for hanging and/or helped out with traffic control including Angie Lucchesi, Shawn Price, Brandon Moore and Leroy Johnson.

The large sequoia tree near McDonald’s was decorated with lights by Teddy Tomerlin and Larry Perna this week as well.
