Baker Street was animated with busy elves Friday night as the first ever Elf Walk was held. Families embraced the fun event where they gobbled up treats, listened to music and enjoyed skipping with the Rhythm Ropers. Donning ears, pointy hats and other elfish garb, people taste tested delicious chili, watched a glass blowing demonstration and much more – all under the most Christmas lights Nelson’s downtown has ever seen. The evening was capped off by a visit from Santa himself who arrived in extraordinary style all aboard Nelson’s fire truck.
