"Santa" livestreamed from "the North Pole" for the city of Mill Creek's virtual Christmas tree lighting event. The city made the best of a quarantined time, with another online event to replace an onsite, community event. The move to online-only gatherings is intended to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Santa Claus joined the city of Mill Creek Mayor Brian Holtzclaw and Mayor Pro Tem Stephanie Vignal. Hmmm, councilman John Steckler was not there. Santa was there.
"Do you believe in the magic of Christmas?" Santa asked. Both said they did.
