In all my 32 years living in Wichita, I don't remember every going downtown for the Mayor's Christmas Tree lighting and arrival of Santa. I head about it on Facebook and thought the kids would like it, especially when I found out there would be fireworks!! We arrived a little after the lighting had already happened...bummer. It was so pretty though!
But we got there just in time to see Santa arrive in a fire truck! Elena was so excited! She was waving at him like crazy.
Then they started the fireworks! Holy moly - this was the longest show ever! It was awesome!
Clapping after the finale!
We also got someone to take our picture in front of the tree! And not only one, but two pictures came out really cute! Yay! (Tip: always look for someone with a nice camera of their own to take your pic!) :)
