The third annual Cahoon Christmas kicked off at Bay Village’s Cahoon Memorial Park with Santa Claus arriving in a fire truck, accompanied by a police escort. After riding through the city’s streets, waving to excited kids of all ages, Santa made his grand appearance to a packed gathering at the Community House.

The annual event, sponsored by the Bay Village Kiwanis Club and the Bay Village Historical Society, included lots of fun provided by many of the city’s civic  groups.

Festivities included Christmas carols sung by the Bay High Choraleers and the Citizens for Bay Village Community Theater, a children’s gingerbread house contest at Rose Hill Museum, and crafts for kids at booths by the Women’s Club, Bay Village Library and the Garden Club.

Children could have their pictures taken with the Fairytale Foundation Princesses and get a hug from a bigger-than-life Snoopy from the  Friends of the Bay Village Kennel.

Santa capped off the event with the lighting of the Christmas tree in the Cahoon Park gazebo.

With unseasonably warm weather, it was also the perfect day to get a Christmas tree from Bay Kiwanis at their annual tree lot.
