The children of IBEW Local 701 members were in for a glorious holiday surprise at the recent Children’s Christmas Party…a visit by the big guy himself, Santa! Bringing loads of holiday cheer, Santa greeted everyone with a hearty “Merry Christmas!” from the second floor of the IBEW Local 701 Hall before descending the stairs into the excited throng of children.

Party goers also were entertained by the The Frog Lady, Deb Krohn, who brought plenty of reptiles and amphibians to shock and delight all in attendance. Merry Hearts Clowns Lily, Poppy and Nutmeg created winter fairies, reindeer, and other whimsical holiday characters through their artistic face painting techniques. Coolbeanz provided balloon animals for the children and plenty of refreshments, including Dinky Donuts, were on hand. That Cube Guy, Kent Johnson mesmerized the audience with his amazing cube-solving abilities! Santa posed for pictures and took time to listen to every child’s Christmas wish before slipping away, leaving presents for all and wonderful memories of the day.
