Santa came to visit children in Cary and decorated trees by fill the park.
Saturday night at Jaycee Park, the Tree Lighting took place despite the weather. Santa and his reindeer were nearby for the children to visit. At Jaycee Park, there were a number of decorated trees created by neighborhood groups, clubs and troops. The trees are beautiful in the snowy weather and many residents have already stopped by to view them but it's not too late to see them, as they will stay up for approximately three weeks. Do you have any decorated tree photos? We'd love for you to upload them, just sign in with your email and create a password.

Over the weekend, Children were able to meet Santa and ask for gifts.
The Cary Park District kicked off the holiday season with a Santa's Workshop, where families rode the Metra train from Cary to Santa's Workshop, which was held at Duke's Alehouse in Crystal Lake. Children asked Santa for gifts like trucks, cars, ponies and makeup. One child asked for a battery operated kitten that could walk and talk. Santa told the children, "Always listen to your parents" and "Put out a couple carrots for the reindeer." Check in daily with patch, as we will have coverage of many holiday events this season.
