Main Street, Escalon, is brightly lit for the holidays and includes the huge Community Christmas Tree adjacent to the historic caboose. Shown here, Mrs. Claus bakes cookies while Santa, at right, checks his holiday list in the front display window of the Escalon Historical Museum on Main. The museum will be closed on Saturdays, Dec. 24 and 31 for the Christmas and New Year’s Eve observances but is open Wednesdays, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. New arrivals in the gift shop at the museum include jigsaw puzzles depicting the historic caboose in Main Street Park. The puzzles are available in two sizes; a 504-piece puzzle priced at $17.50 and a 35-piece puzzle priced at $15.
