It's the week before Thanksgiving, and in Easton that means that Centre Square's Soldiers' & Sailor's Monument is turning into a giant candle.
That 61-year-old tradition continued Wednesday as a group of city workers -- joined by volunteer iron workers from Local No. 36 -- put up the Peace Candle.
The candle is over 100 feet tall -- the flame at the top is around 12 feet -- and made of wood and fiberglass. It is set to be lit next Friday night at 8 p.m.
