Children lined up on Cook Street Saturday to spend a little time with Santa during his annual return on a firetruck to light the tree in downtown Barrington. 365BarringtonTV Reporter Catherine Goetze thought it would be a great opportunity to catch St. Nick on camera.
She also talked with kids about what gifts they’re hoping Santa will leave under the tree this year and we LOVE the excitement we see in their sweet young faces!
The kids gave Catherine and her videographer, BHS Sophomore Tommy Derken the 4-1-1 on their favorite things about Christmas and some of the hottest gifts of the season.
Local US Marines were collecting toys for their annual Toys 4 Tots campaign during Santa’s arrival in Barrington Saturday. 2nd District Commandant Marty Smith III with the US Marines was taking pictures and shared this gallery of photos for us to enjoy.
