The city of Roanoke held its Hometown Holiday event from noon to 8 p.m. on Dec. 4.

The free event, which took place in the city's historic downtown along Oak Street, included treats—from s'mores to funnel cake to custom-decorated Christmas cookies—as well as live music, simulated snow, a parade, carriage rides, a shopping bazaar, the tree lighting ceremony and more.
