Light Up Night marks start of Christmas season in Hudson
A temperature in the teens didn’t keep several hundred children and parents from greeting Santa Claus when he arrived in downtown Hudson last Friday night.
In a departure from past years, Santa came to town on the Hudson Fire Department’s classic 1934 engine.
A horse-drawn sleigh was used to carry him down Second Street in former years. Organizers of the Light-Up Night worried about the horse becoming nervous and bolting when surrounded by the crowd of children and parents.
