The Ray Junior High School Cheerleaders brighten up their float during the Winter Wonderland Electric Light Parade.

With Jack Frost nipping at everyone’s noses, parts of Kearny Saturday were transformed into a Winter Wonderland with games, music performances and a light parade that drove the dark from the night.

It also heralded the opening of the Christmas season for residents of the Copper Basin Area with the arrival of Mr. and Mrs. S. Claus with help from the pilots of Native Air and the volunteers of the Kearny Fire Department. Children of all ages were able to tell the famous couple all of their Christmas dreams and wishes.

Winter Wonderland would not be complete without a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus and their giant headed helper Rudolph the Reindeer. Kids of all ages got to visit with the couple throughout the afternoon until it was time for the parade to start. With crafts, music and a Smurfs movie to watch, there was something for everyone.
