A “snowball fight” broke out at the North Pole between Buddy the Elf, who, of course, gathered up arm fulls, and local children who were doing their best to hit him with a few. 

Luckily for the children and their parents, their North Pole journey was not quite as long as the one Buddy went on, but the Christmas spirit was just the same on Sunday, Dec. 15. 

The Grinch was at the event the night before.
