The annual Festival of Lights was launched by Mayor Chuck Haney, this year's Christmas Spirit Student Tara Webb, Santa Claus, and a couple of his helpers on the evening of November 19. Warm apple cider, and coffee were served for free while children asked Santa for their Christmas wishes. Santa made sure to hear them all as he stayed for the entire event. Dozens of people waited in the 33 degree temperature for their turn on the sleigh ride that went on until every last person was able to get a ride. An estimated 500 people attended the lighting event for the display that will go on until the new year. C-T Photo Jaime Saucedo
