Nelson’s Baker Street was filled with folks wishing for festivities Friday night.

Over 1000 people filled the 400 Block of Baker Street and beyond, many dressed as Elves for the second annual Elf Walk.

Roasted chestnuts, popcorn, hot dogs, and hot drinks were consumed as the community braved a cold December night.

Then, the elves gathered to parade down Baker as Santa arrived in true Nelson fashion, aboard the fire truck to light the trees. Santa made his way to the Trading Company to meet the hoards of kids while grown-up elves enjoyed some music, lights and each other’s company.
