FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): For the 17th year in a row, the holidays started with a bang near downtown Fort Wayne as fireworks rang out and a giant Christmas tree was lit.

The annual Christmas on Broadway took place at Broadway Plaza, outside of the Shine & Hardin Law Office, Friday night. At least several hundred people lined the street to enjoy holiday music, see a parade featuring Santa Claus and local paralympics athletes, and donate to WOWO’s annual Penny Pitch fundraiser, this year benefiting GiGi’s Playhouse. This was the second year in a row the annual event was tied to Christmas on Broadway.
