Musical performances was provided by the Ellenvale Junior High choir, while dance performances were done by a pair of groups from Fall River School of Performance Arts in Windsor Junction.

Both received a round of applause and amazement for their routines from the many crowded around to watch.

Besides those, the kids got to tell Santa and Mrs. Claus what they wanted to have under their Christmas tree on Christmas morning, and there were some questions of the two about how the Elves and Reindeer were doing.

Later outside, with Kevin O’Halloran and Trish Polley leading the countdown, more than a handful of people joined them as they did the countdown from 10 to the tree being lit up on the Village Green, which is located next to the intersection of Highway 2 and Rocky Lake Drive.

It was a great night in Waverley!!!
