Michael Johansing, the Dancing Santa, has been dancing in front of his home on Fremont Way west of 72nd Ave. in Yakima for seven years. He hands out candy canes to children and wishes for a merry Christmas, and said he does so just to give people a reason to smile. Johansing said he plants to dance from 7-9 p.m. every night until Dec. 23, except not on Saturday, Dec. 14 or Tuesday, Dec. 17.
