About 80 children showed up to see Santa Claus and to take part in a "cake walk" program last Saturday at North Dam Park.

A number of local citizens provided cakes, some 25 in all, to be passed out to children whose numbers were called.

It was a community affair, with the Eagles and Moose lodges taking part, along with the City of Electric City and a dozen members of the community choir.

The program began at 3 p.m. and lasted until five, with Santa arriving about 4.

There were hot dogs and hot cocoa, and children were given sacks with a variety of presents inside.

A lighted tree and signs promoting the event had been put up the Wednesday before.

A fire was lit in an effort to keep those attending warm.
