Ursula, one of the hosts of the Gee & Ursula Show, and Micki, one of KIRO’s traffic and transportation reporters, co-emceed the event this year, counting down the clock to usher in the post-Thanksgiving and end-of-the-year holiday celebrations.
Ursula recounted enjoying the 2022 event and seeing the joy on people’s faces among all the people who attended.
“Gee (Scott) and I had such a blast doing it last year,” said Ursula. “It’s so fun seeing all the smiling faces in the crowd as the big tree lights up downtown Seattle. It’s the perfect way to kick off the holiday season!”
Micki noted her excitement not only about being able to participate in the event in her adopted hometown, but to do it with Ursula as well.
“As a newcomer to Seattle and making this city my home, I am absolutely ecstatic to be hosting with Ursula,” Micki said. “Not only is she a friend and co-worker, but she is a mentor and pillar of professionalism.”
Those in attendance also saw a performance from The 5th Avenue Theatre’s show “White Christmas.” From there, the holiday celebration continued on with performances from the African American Cultural Ensemble and Motown vocal trio The Jewel Tones.
