About 5,000 people attended the Fountain Valley 2011 Tree Lighting on Saturday at the city's Recreation Center and Sports Park, where Santa made an appearance with Mrs. Claus, according to a news release issued by the city.

The four-hour event was a full-on night of entertainment that included a fireworks show and snow. There were carnival-style games, crafts, letters to Santa, a storybook walk-through and pictures with Santa, among other highlights.

The event was sponsored by the Fountain Valley Community Foundation, Rainbow Environmental Services, Care Ambulance Service, Southern California Edison and Independence Bank.
