With two beautiful mules leading the way, Santa arrived in downtown Sullivan tonight, much to the delight of scores of children and adults. While it almost felt balmy for the last day of November, Santa brought well-wishes from the North Pole and took plenty of time to listen to the holiday dreams and wish-lists of children at the city gazebo on Main Street.
The annual lighting of the Christmas tree coincided with the first annual Santa Fun Run 1k event. About 45 runners joined in the event, many dressing up in Santa gear for the jog around downtown.Shortly after the race (won by Dale Young of Steelville), the tree was lit and Santa appeared.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!
