Spirit of Christmas Wednesday, December 05, 2007

Kevin De Lucio, 3, recoils as his parents, Baudelia Martinez and Luis De Lucio help him feed an alpaca in the petting zoo at Spirit of Christmas celebrations Nov. 24 in downtown Gresham.

The City of Gresham kicked off its holiday season with The Spirit of Christmas celebrations in the historic downtown area a couple of weekends ago. There were various activities during the day, a tree lighting ceremony in the evening and, of course, a visit from Santa Claus.
