City Parks And Recreation Department employees Ernest Krueger, left, and David Brown try to secure a reindeer while Charles Carter Jr., right, tries to steady the display outside City Hall this morning. Krueger said the city has been using the same Santa Claus for more than 45 years, and the reindeer were given to the city by Koestler’s Bakery, which had used the display at its Clay Street location until the bakery closed nearly 30 years ago.
