GREEN — Christmas at Town Park attracted revelers to greet the holiday season Nov. 30.

The event included the Rudolph Run, a half-mile fun run, with participants shown at bottom.

Runners were encouraged to dress in costume, and winning for their effort as the Grinch and some Whos were dad Tim Poirier, mom Tiffany Porter and daughters Alison Poirier, 11, and Sophia Poirier, 5, shown at bottom right.

After a community sing-along, Santa Claus arrived by fire truck, as shown above right, and later met with children in the Central Administration Building.

The evening was capped off by a fireworks display, as shown at top.
