Editor’s Note: Being a consummate professional Tom Hagerty braved the snow* and cold yesterday to photograph the kick-off to the holiday season — SantaCon 2011. If you’re not familiar with SantaCon, just imagine a sleigh-full of department store Santas and their elves having a few beers after work and playing beer pong. * – OK, there wasn’t any snow, but there was a lot of beer pong. Tom choose to take photographs rather than join in. That’s professionalism.

If you or someone you know attended the game, be sure to check out Lakeland Local right after for the line score and Tom’s pics.

It appears the circus is in town today. This morning workers started erecting a tent over Lakeland City Hall. It’s not the circus though. City Hall has a bug problem, and nothing as exciting as listening devices. The bright yellow and white tent is to allow the city to fumigate the building to eradicate termites.
Lakeland Local photographer Tom Hagerty was on the scene to take a few photos of the process. Here’s the full set of photos.
City Hall will reopen Monday, December 28th.
