This will be the 27th year that the Westside Business Association has sponsored the annual celebration which each season draws more than 1,000 children and their families for an evening of merriment that includes music, dancing, refreshments, games and an opportunity for children to have their picture taken with Santa. Other activities include face painting, book giveaways and chances to win bicycles and an assortment of other prizes. Entertainment will be provided by DJ Vargas, the Falcon Folklorico, the Hyper Squad hip-hop dance team and the Islander Dance Team. Children also will receive goodie bags.
