Whitefish was decorated in its iconic winter fashion Sunday morning.

Volunteers strung lighted punctuated with red bells, snowflakes and wreaths throughout downtown signaling the beginning of the holiday season.

The decorations are a tradition that have brightened town for more than 50 years.

A group of dedicated volunteers have been repairing, replacing, improving and hanging and taking down those same decorations every winter season.

The nonprofit Whitefish Shines takes donations for the materials to keep the tradition alive. To donate to the decoration project, Whitefish Shines, P.O. Box 695 Whitefish, MT 59937.
