Third Annual Holiday Party for Kids

These photos are from the annual holiday party for kids from Cleveland's Fairfax and Central neighborhoods, organized by the dedicated Tanya Holmes. The festivities included food, hot chocolate, candy, games, dancing, presents, and a visit from Santa. My partner and I volunteered to photograph the event and really enjoyed being with the kids and their families.


The children competed in a dance contest.

When Santa arrived, a sea of excited children surged toward him, looking for hugs. For little kids, Santa is the ultimate rock star. What a sight!

The children were invited to pick out new hats and gloves.

 The Rolls Royce club's Jazzy J led the children in song.

The kids, singing "Jingle Bells" and other carols.
