Thousands gather for 3rd annual Panthers tree lighting

- The area around Bank of America Stadium was packed full of Panthers fans Wednesday night, waiting for Santa, Cam Newton and the sparkling Christmas tree. 

The event was Carolina Panthers' third annual tree lighting. 

FOX 46 Charlotte spoke with one family who said they missed it last year and were not going to let that happen again. 

"Last year we missed it because traffic and it was very busy…we wanted to come early so we could get a good seat before it gets busy." 
The tree is located at the corner of Mint and Graham Street.
