Shortly after the tree was lit by student Steven Manderson, there was a puff of smoke on the roof of City Hall signalling the arrival of Santa Claus. Santa made his way down to the awaiting crowd, interacting with the excited children and adults.

    I was wondering when the tree would be lit but never saw any notice as to when. Finally when there is something to do on a Friday night besides having a drink, I know nothing of it. Oh well, I guess I can go to the Santa Clause parade….that is this Sunday, right??

    For those of us that weren’t there, thank you Bernews for sharing. Beautiful tree and great to see such a good turnout.

    I wonder if they’re charging Santa for his visit this year?
