VINITA, Oklahoma - The town of Vinita is officially ready for Christmas.

The small town hosted Christmas in Vinita Saturday - where they lit a community tree downtown. A group of about eight women organized the the event, and News On 6's Tess Maune got to help light the tree.

The celebration had lots of free fun for children including performances, meeting Santa Claus, of course - and the Grinch, too.

Thank you to Angela Thomason with the Vinita Daily Journal for taking pictures and sharing them with us.
