The hot chocolate was flowing Friday as Elmhurst children braved the chilly night to spend a few minutes with Santa Claus.
Santa rolled up to Police Plaza in an Elmhurst firetruck for City Centre's annual tree lighting. Elmhurst's own police Chief Michael Ruth was on scene to escort Santa and his lovely wife, Mrs. Claus, to the plaza.
