CALEDONIA—Santa’s Snowflake Tour spent four special nights in Caledonia this past weekend from November 25-28, 2021. The tour started each day between 5-6 p.m. in a new section of the town so kids across Caledonia could each have the chance to see Santa. The snowflake tour was started as an alternative Santa Claus parade during the pandemic, allowing families to watch the event from the comfort of their own lawns.
