Santa, lights shine in Baldwin City again
December 16, 2004
This time it didn’t rain, the lights were shining bright, there was a little nip in the air and — best of all — Santa Claus made his usual appearance at the end of the fifth-annual Holiday Lights Parade Sunday in downtown Baldwin City. Santa has always been the parade finale, arriving at the city Christmas tree in the back of the Baldwin City Fire Department’s antique fire truck — which of course, is decked out in lights. Santa hand out candy canes and ho, ho, hos with the kids, then he turns on the lights to the tree. This year he had help from 6-month-old Abigal Patterson, daughter of Brian and Michelle Patterson. Santa held Abigal in one arm as he flipped the switch to the lights with his other hand. “It’s her first time to see Santa,” Brian Patterson said. “Yes, it’s real special. Too bad we forgot our camera.”
