Santa Claus coming to downtown Friday

November 22, 2007


The annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony and Visit with Santa Claus is set for 5:30 p.m. Friday on the US Bank Tower Plaza, Ninth and Massachusetts streets.

Holiday entertainment along Massachusetts Street will begin at 5 p.m.

The festivities will feature the caroling as well as the Kaw Valley Fife and Drum Corps and the 4-H band.

The evening will be capped off with Santa Claus landing his sleigh on Weaver's Department Store rooftop, where the Lawrence Fire & Medical Department will help him descend from the roof to visit with children.

The festivities are organized by Downtown Lawrence Inc., Lawrence Fire & Medical and other downtown businesses.

If the LFD has to help Santa off the roof at Weaver's every year.....How is he able to deliver toys via all the roof tops world wide? I smell a rat.

I say its past time for this caring community to pitch in and get Santa a GPS/atlas device so he doesn't keep landing on Weavers!
