Saturday, December 13, after Winterfest blessed 250 local families, the community of Parkland set to celebrating with everyone else in the community.
Santa visited the Garfield Bookstore from 2-4 p.m., a venue sponsored by the Safe Streets organization.
At 4:30 p.m., a group of local families met in front of Reynas. Felix Guzman led the Pasado walk with Pastor Jesus from Trinity Lutheran Church. Everyone carried battery-powered candles and walked to Trinity where they sang carols and helped light the Christmas tree. Afterward, they walked around the church singing carols and into the Thompson room for cookie decorating.
