LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - An annual Lawrence holiday tradition will be rescheduled because of a winter storm.

The Lawrence Journal-World (https://bit.ly/1TbDjT7 ) reports that firefighters had been scheduled to rescue Santa Claus on Friday night from a downtown rooftop using a ladder truck. The rescue is part of the town’s Christmas lighting celebration.

But Downtown Lawrence Inc. director Sally Zogry says that with near-freezing temperatures and precipitation throughout the day, the lights will be switched on with a timer instead. Santa’s annual appearance atop Weaver’s Department Store will be moved to Dec. 4.

Each year, Santa listens to the Christmas wishes of children and poses for pictures once on the ground.
