Santa Claus took a vacation from the North Pole on Saturday to stop by Avon's tree-lighting ceremony and listen to children's Christmas wishes at the Santa Stroll & Tree Lighting.
The event was sponsored by the French Creek Development Association, which hosted a reception in the newly-renovated with refreshments and model trains set up by the Railblazers and the Amherst Railroaders.
Fran Burik, president of the French Creek Development Association, said the event was a success.
"There more people than we expected, a lot more," she said.
