ENGLEWOOD — Santa Claus paid a visit Saturday to the City of Englewood’s annual ‘Holiday Open House’ at the government center.

Santa drove his magic sleigh through the front entrance and into the lobby where he greeted kids and their families. He then made his way over to a bench to listen to children’s Christmas wish lists.

The Englewood Civic Band under the direction of Conductor Tim Elliot entertained guests by performing a variety of holiday music in the council chambers, which was filled to capacity with spectators.

A popular attraction each year is holiday balloon animals made individually for each child that requested one. Refreshments and cookies were provided by the Englewood Arts Commission.
