Above, Santa Claus waves at local youngsters as he makes his way down Main Street Thursday during Artesia MainStreet’s annual Light Up Artesia event. Below, a row of little angels greets those lined along the street to watch the Xcel Energy Parade of Lights. Following the parade, attendees were able to make their way through the downtown shopping district, perusing wares in local stores and enjoying goodies prepared by sidewalk vendors. At bottom, a gallery displays other images from the festive parade.
