The cold didn’t keep everyone away from “Pleasantville” Thursday night during Holiday on Main.

Central Park was transformed into a Dr. Seuss’ Whoville inspired Pleasantville, including Cindy Lou Who and the Grinch making their way through the crowd.

Melissa Hummell-Sprague said her kids were excited all afternoon for the event. “They were ready to come out,” she said.

Six-year-old James Raschendorfer was excited to see Santa. “He’s got a red nose,” he said as he, his mom, Cassandra Little, and sister, Haleigh Staats, stood in line to see Old St. Nick. “I’m going to ask for a big nerf gun.”

Little said she was impressed with how the park looked and felt it made the night even more festive.

Blake Vierra and his wife Ming brought their two children - Daylen, 6, and Esmei, 3, - to see Santa.

“This has been fun,” said Ming. “I really like the music. It must be hard to play in this cold weather.”

Ming was referring to the middle school band, who played holiday selections earlier in the evening.

“That’s why we have hot coco,” said Daylen when his mother mentioned the cold. Although Daylen and his sister had visited Santa, Daylen said he was most excited about the slide coming out of Santa’s house.

Holiday on Main was held from 5 to 8 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 7, in Central Park.
