LYNDONVILLE – The third annual holiday celebration in Lyndonville has grown to 54 trees decorated by the community at Veterans Park.

Santa Claus arrived in a sleigh and flipped a switch to turn on the lights for the trees at about 5 p.m. today.

Santa waves to the crowd gathered along Main Street as he makes his way to the park.

There were activities throughout the day to celebrate the Christmas season.

Santa arrives and is met by many happy children. After turning on the lights by flipping a switch at the “North Pole,” Santa met with children and their families until 7 p.m. at the Village Hall.

Santa is the center of attention at the park.

This is the third year Lyndonville has organized the holiday celebration.

The number of decorated trees has grown from 26 in 2013 to 43 last year and now 54 for 2015.

The trees are expected to stay at Veterans Park until early January.
