Santa Claus is making his final preparations for his return to the Copper Country.
The traditional day-after-Thanksgiving arrival of Santa takes place on Friday with the 38th annual Christmas Walk in downtown Hancock, put on by the Hancock Business and Professional Association.
The holiday walk begins at 6pm by the Scott Building.
Families can follow Santa on his fire truck down Quincy Street in a parade to City Hall for the lighting of the Christmas Tree.
There will be cookie decorating, small gifts for children, dog sled rides on Quincy Green and horse drawn wagon rides around town.
