JONESBORO --Emily Doggett was excited after the countdown from 3, 2, 1...
"All of the light came on!" she exclaimed.
Both adults and kids were on hand for the 10th annual Lights on the Ridge lighting ceremony. The lights went on at this year's beacon building, the Clopton Clinic.
Dr. Owen Clopton was proud of the event.
"It's been a long time coming, but it's here now," he said. Decorations at the clinic feature custom designed lights that circle the building's property.
Around 27,000 lights will twinkle at the Clopton Clinic until early next year. Dr. Clopton said, "This is the first time we've ever had any significant Christmas lighting."
