THE VILLAGE REPORTER
Blakeslee was really something on December 16th and provided a wonderful memory for all of those who helped welcome Santa to town.
Santa was led in by a lighted parade, after which he, Mrs. Claus, and their two grand-elves came back down to the village hall to greet all of the Blakeslee children.
Not only could the kids get to see Santa, but everyone got to partake in delicious chili, hot chocolate, and more, served up by the caring officials of Blakeslee.
The parade’s success was apparent, and the turnout was amazing! The idea was that of the village’s Mayor, Cody Reynolds, and this is the first ever Santa Parade hosted by Blakeslee.
With how successful it was, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the first of many annual Blakeslee Santa parades.
