Hundreds of children line up to see Santa in Eagle River

Posted:

EAGLE RIVER (WAOW) -- Santa and Mrs. Claus wrapped up Eagle River's Annual Ice Shanty Parade Saturday.

After the parade hundreds of children lined up to get a picture with Santa and tell him what they want for Christmas.

"It's a cold winter day. Which is perfect and I think it's just great to see the kids having fun," said Katie Hays, the President of the Eagle River Business Association. "The excitement in a child's eye when they see Santa. It's amazing to me."

Santa left his reindeer in the North Pole Saturday, but he brought his favorite horses to Eagle River.

People of all ages had the opportunity to take a ride through town on his horse-drawn sleigh.
