Swamping Santa


Children gather around Santa after his arrival in New Prague's Memorial Park Friday, Dec. 6, for the tree lighting ceremony. While the annual Parade of Lights was cancelled due to the frigid temperatures, Santa made his arrival at the park on a truck from the New Prague Fire Department and led the festivities for lighting the Community Christmas tree. A fireworks show by RES Specialty Pyrotechnics followed the tree lighting. For more see the Thursday, Dec. 12, edition of The New Prague Times.
