What happened at Santaland on the Square December 1, 2011?
People came to see the 2nd Annual Parade of Lights. 

After the parade they watched Dance Fusion, listened to music from the Alvarado Golden Warrior Jazz Band and the Alvarado High School Choir. They also enjoyed the lovely decorations all over the Square and the kids lined up for a visit with Santa. This made everyone very hungry and thirsty so they came over to the Library Board's refreshment booth and bought lots of cookies, nachos, candy and hot cocoa!
