Hundreds of people packed together, for warmth and for a good look, at El Dorado Hills Town Center’s annual Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony Saturday night.
Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived in style in an El Dorado Hills fire engine and, after greeting countless children eager to share their Christmas lists, the couple flipped the switch. The crowd applauded as the tree in front of the movie theater lit up and brightened the night sky.
Families then lined up to get their photos taken in front of the beautiful Christmas tree.
For those who missed Santa Saturday night: The jolly fellow will be at the California Welcome Center in Town Center through Dec. 24. Visit eldoradohillstowncenter.com for times and dates.
