Santa arrived in Bar Harbor on Friday night, December 3rd to meet with Island children, and to light the tree at the Village Green

Flying in with his reindeer, Santa landed with his sleigh at the Ballfield and was driven by the Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce to the Village Green escorted by a police car from the Bar Harbor Police Department and a Bar Harbor Fire Truck. Santa remarked how great it was to see everything lit up, and to see everyone on the street waving back at Santa!

There he was greeted by over a hundred children! Santa gave lots of fist bumps to all the children who were on Santa's good list! You could tell they were on Santa's good list because they were all drinking hot chocolate and had their masks on when not drinking or eating cookies! Thanks to the Trenton Elementary School Show Choir that helped lead the singing of Christmas Carols!

It was very windy and Santa's beard was blowing in the wind and I believe Santa's hat even blew off one time! Santa read "T'was the Night Before Christmas" with the children joining in at the end, "Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night" Then it was time to light the Christmas Tree! Santa was very impressed with how well all the kids could count backwards from 10! 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1! Light that Tree! What a great job Alf, Chris and Mel did in decorating the Christmas Tree! If you haven't seen it, make sure you go see it! The Village Green looks beautiful!

Then it was time for Santa to meet with the local children and have pictures taken. I overheard Santa telling the children that he had waited all year to see them! He asked if they were behaving and staying on Santa's good list!

After all the children had visited Santa looked over and thought 1 of his reindeer had come up from the ballfield, but it was just the Moose from Cool as a Moose!
