I am not from Wheeling and don’t have the personal experience of the crowded downtown with a talking Christmas tree. It was great to learn the history of that and the Olgebay lights. And I really like the still pix of downtown when most of the shops were full. Log in to Reply Marie McGannon December 19, 2016 I enjoyed the show. Brought back memories. I liked hearing the history of Olgebay’s Festival of Lights.
