It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Cloquet Minnesota 122 Avenue C 55720

Christmas greeted shoppers with quiet carols and displays of crafty items as they walked through the doors of Carlton High School on Saturday morning.

A pancake breakfast with Santa got the morning started, followed by booths displaying a variety of goodies.

Adults leisurely browsed through tables of Christmas decorations, jewelry, leather crafts and wood items, pausing to visit with friends and exchange hugs.

Shoppers maneuvered strollers around booths of traditional baked goods, including tasty brownies as well as peach nut breads, homemade hats and sparkling mittens.

The family-friendly event featured a children's craft area where kids of all ages could make their own "reindeer food" or Christmas ornaments, sometimes aided by mom.

Santa was available for pictures after the breakfast, and if the kids were too shy, mom often wasn't!

After Santa finished with his stint in the cafeteria, he moved down the hallway for a professional studio set up by Marque Photography in a beautiful classic Santa scene as parents watched nearby.
