Santa and Mrs. Claus honored as grand marshals for Parade of Lights
Santa cherishes the joy that he is able to bring to both the young and old each year during the holiday season. Mrs. Claus is grateful that her work at the North Pole has been delegated to the elves, allowing her to visit Meeker with Santa. Historically, Santa has been able to travel to the Meeker area with Rudolph and then hop onto a snowmobile to make his visits. In the years when there has not been enough snow, Santa and Mrs. Claus make their rounds on a 4-wheeler.
Through the years and numerous visits, Santa still remembers his special trip when he rode his snowmobile from the Rio Blanco Store on Highway 13 to White River City on Highway 64, visiting the residents of Piceance Creek along the way.
Santa enjoys the many community activities that he participates in each year including Breakfast with Santa, hosted by the Meeker Recreation District and Lions Club, delivering packages in conjunction with the Giving Tree, visiting and delivering packages to residents at the Walbridge Wing during a luncheon hosted by Mountain Valley Bank, and making guest appearances at the many holiday parties around town.
Santa and Mrs. Claus are honored to travel with the Capitol Christmas Tree across the United States as it makes its journey to Washington, D.C. They are grateful to be able to present a part of our wonderful Meeker area, the White River National Forest, and the great state of Colorado, to the nation’s Capitol. The Claus’ would like to thank the Meeker community for its support in this trip.
Santa and Mrs. Claus would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and they will see you in December when they return!
