Firefighters from Humboldt Bay Fire gave Aanta a ride over to the gazebo in Old Town Eureka. St. Nick said hello to children and parents who were gathered downtown to catch a glimpse of the Christmas legend.

Santa makes a yearly visit to downtown Eureka as one of his first stops in the Holiday season. While Santa was there he took a seat to get an idea of what some local children wanted this year for Christmas.
