People crowded into the Claremont Village on Friday night for shopping, dinner and some holiday spirit.
The city celebrated the season with a holiday celebration, which included a Christmas Tree lighting, carolers around the village and a skating rink.
Children lined up outside of City Hall for the chance to tell Santa Claus what they wanted for Christmas, as well as for families to get a picture with the jolly old elf.
The holiday celebration will continue Saturday, as local businesses hope for an influx of foot traffic. The skating rink will be available as well.
