 We had a great show of Bayou Vista Residents for the lighting. The Faith Community Church and Praise Team. A special thanks to Tanya & Mike Russo.
Faith Community Church choir and Praise Team. Santa arrived by Bayou Vista Firetruck
The kids were excited to see Santa. All the little kids wanted to speak to him.
Hot Chocolate was served by Penny and Sylvia. Homemade cookies were passed around by Donna Bumpas.
With a twitch from Santa's nose, the lights came on. This is what everyone will see when they pass by the tree.
