U.S. Marine Corps representatives and Iraq war veteran, Sgt. Marquis Young were given the honors of illuminating CityWalk’s Christmas tree as “5 Towers” new Holiday Lights Spectacular glistened with hundreds of thousands of LED lights, transforming the outdoor area into a visually dynamic, over-the-top multi-media experience.
