Check out the video above for a glimpse into the talent of the night.

A night of traditional community holiday cheer was enjoyed by a large crowd.
Middletown's annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Holiday Festival was filled with community fun and activity Sunday night. After the tree was ceremoniously lit on the law outside the Middletown Arts Center (MAC), it was onto more rooms full of merriment inside. There was a talent show, an arts and crafts session, Doodle Dude (Art Kaney) fun in the decked halls, an ongoing winter art show, snacks and, of course, Santa. A good holiday time was had by all. Take a sneak peak into the evening. Click on the above slideshow (marked VIDEO) set to music. Middletown Patch will also feature a video of some talent caught on camera later today. In the meantime, enjoy and happy holidays!
