SANTA VISITED BYRON on Friday, Dec. 2 and helped local children not only place bulbs on the Christmas tree in Byron’s Sesquicentennial Park, but also helped flip the switch to light it as a kick-off to the Christmas season. Santa is shown here with the children placing bulbs on the newly lit tree.
Santa arrived in Byron on a fire engine and then grabbed a ride on a horse drawn wagon to the park just east of Byron High School. He is shown here riding the wagon with the children back into town to see the children one by one to discover their upcoming Christmas wishes. (Independent Photos/Elizabeth Wehman)
