CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wisconsin (WEAU) – Christmas came for children and their families at Irvine Park earlier this year.
All the way from the North Pole, Santa Claus took a night off himself to celebrate the Christmas spirit by the lights of the Christmas village in the Chippewa waterfalls.
The jolly old man handed out candy canes and waved to families enjoying the parking lights as they drove by.
With Christmas less than a week away, Santa had an important message for the children to remember this year.
“Be believers, just be believers and everything will be fine,” says Santa Claus. “I have a lot of family members from here and have come to visit. I thought they canceled the parade in downtown Chippewa. Since they canceled that, I thought I’d come to Irvine Park, go through and say, ‘Merry Christmas everyone. “
Santa Claus also says he’s coming next Friday, hoping that Christmas will be a white one for everyone in Badger State.
