The holidays are here, and the festivities have begun in the Village of Lewiston. Christmas lights are shining along Center Street, the Lewiston Family Ice Rink is open, and, on Friday, the Hennepin Park Gazebo Christmas tree was lit.
As part of the ceremony, Village of Lewiston Mayor Terry Collesano offered remarks, Santa took pictures with children, Lewiston Dance members performed and St. Peter School children sang carols.
The Lewiston Christmas Walk takes place this weekend. On Saturday, Santa will fly into Academy Park via helicopter before parading down Center in a custom trailer, which awaits at Deal Realty. St. Nick will then pose for more pictures throughout the day, and listen as children place their holiday orders. (photos by Joshua Maloni)
