Kettle Falls welcomes Santa

The sixth annual Giving Around the Christmas Tree is one of the highlights of the season in Kettle Falls. Children of all ages rode through town in a firetruck parade with Santa Claus. Afterward, each child was offered cookies and hot chocolate as they waited for their chance to sit on Santa’s lap. This year’s event once again offered a donation drop off location for Operation Santa Claus and the Kettle Falls Food Bank. Photos courtesy Katie Dunn.
