It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in Rochester.

An official tree lighting was held at the Greater Rochester international airport Saturday morning.

County Executive Maggie Brooks and Mayor Tom Richards were joined by the Blue Star Mothers of America who were all honoring soldiers who are spending the holidays overseas.

"It's a special time of year for everyone, and when our soldiers aren't here during the holidays it just brings an outpouring of love to make sure we capture their hearts,” said Rochelle Sulli, from the Rochester chapter of Blue Star Mothers of America.
