Barriere officially welcomed the Christmas season to town with a tree lighting in Fadear Park on Saturday, Dec. 7, under an almost full moon. A number of people turned out for the event and the kids had a blast, especially when Santa made a surprise appearance on his way to the North Pole. A concession was onsite offering hot dogs and goodies by donation, there was fun crafts for the kids to do, and also a silent auction fundraiser. (Ellen Montieth photo)
