Santa Claus will make his annual appearance Friday, Dec. 6, in front of Sonoma City Hall.

Santa will arrive, as usual, on an antique fire truck at 5:30 p.m. to light the tree at City Hall and to meet the boys and girls who come out to greet him. The festivities get under way at 5 p.m. with the Sonoma Valley Soroptimists serving hot chocolate and the Sonoma Conservatory of Dance putting on a performance.

Afterward, follow Santa to the Sebastiani Theatre for a showing of Disney’s new movie, “Frozen,” or take a walk around downtown and admire the shops’ Christmas goodies.
