Santa Makes Special Visit to Festival of Trees
The annual tradition of Santa and Mrs. Claus visiting St. Vincent's Festival of Trees continued Saturday. Erie News Now is a proud sponsor of the festival.
Children and their families were greeted with breakfast and a personal visit with the first family of gift giving. They also received a photo and Christmas goodie bag to take home. It's a tradition that brings families back every year.
"My favorite part about this is that they have Mrs. Claus, and they're the only ones around here that do Santa and Mrs. Claus," Amanda Reeves, a yearly visitor said. "I had these traditions growing up and they were very important to me and I want to instill those traditions on my children as well."
Also in attendance were princesses and Batman. Erie News Now meteorologist Joe Curtis also showed kids how to be a weatherperson. The Festival of Trees continues Sunday, from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.
