Right, Jeremy Murphy put his daughter, Ophelia, 5, on his shoulders so she could see Santa and Mrs. Claus arriving on the fire engine. Ophelia said she had a “list” of things she wants for Christmas to share with Santa.

Heather Ludwig, and her son Peter, are at the head of the line in this photo at the beloved Chamber Cookie Walk, which was held in the Farm Grounds location.

Madison Bullock, 5, enjoys her visit with Santa Claus.

Arriving downtown are Santa and Mrs. Claus (who bear a strong resemblance to the married couple, Kris and Debbie Corbin of Nevada). They got off the fire engine, greeted children and Santa lit the tree. Then children lined up to talk to Santa personally. Photos by Marlys Barker
