The truck bay was filled, not with trucks, but with anxious boys and girls waiting to get a turn on Santa Claus’ lap.
Santa was the man of the hour during the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration in Soldotna on Thursday, which is organized by the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce with help from local businesses and community members.
Finn Williams, 3, waited for Santa to climb down from the fire truck so he could shake his hand.
“I liked meeting Santa,” Finn said. “He was nice.”
