Hundreds of people attended the 25th Annual Celebration of Lights and Great Falls Holiday Fest on Sunday, Dec. 6 at the Great Falls Village Center in Great Falls. Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived by antique fire truck and lit the giant Christmas Tree. There was a petting zoo, pony rides, a blazing yule log, and choral groups that sang holiday music.
Waiting in line to see Santa was Lauren Carbaugh and her family, who have been coming to the event for the past 17 years. "It's just a wonderful Great Falls tradition," she said.
Her daughter Charlotte, 10, added: "I've been coming since I was a little girl and it's part of our Christmas."
