FRANKLIN, Tennessee — The Tennessee Star caught a glimpse of Santa Claus on a motorcycle in downtown Franklin Sunday afternoon.
Accompanied by a green clad assistant riding behind, Santa drove his motorcycle down Main Street, stopping along the way to hand out candy canes to excited children shopping with their parents.
Both Santa and his elf assistant patiently accommodated the many requests for photographs that came from children, parents, and adult passers by alike.
“We do this every year because we want to,” Mr. Claus told The Star, before he roared away, spreading good cheer to all who watched and waved as he faded out of sight.
Sources tell The Star that Mr. Claus and his elf assistant are long-time residents of Williamson County who have conducted their motorcycle candy cane missions for many years during the Christmas season.
