LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) – A holiday tradition in the California neighborhood Thursday night helped bring joy to the community as the Light Up California celebration kicked off.
Along with music and games, Santa Claus paid a visit to California Leisure Park to take wish requests from kids back to the North Pole!
Santa even handed out some Christmas gifts a little early.
“It’s a great opportunity to help build community,” David James, the Louisville Metro Council president, said at the event. “We just get to see a bunch of smiling faces and happy children, and that's what the season is all about.”
Thursday’s event was the eighth year of Light Up California.
