FULTON, NY – Santa Claus made an appearance with his wife in Fulton around 7 p.m. on Thursday.
Even in the light rain, the city of Fulton lit up its Christmas Tree Jubilee and began holiday festivities.
The Jubilee was a wonderful community event in Oswego County, where families could go and enjoy local businesses and nonprofits together.
Dunkin’ Donuts was the major contributing business.
They distributed donuts and hot chocolate to families and attendees at no charge.
Dunkin’ Donuts was represented by its mascot for the evening, a giant donut.
The Friends of Fulton Public Library was there representing the nonprofit through popcorn, candy canes, bookmarks and an Elf mascot that introduced himself to everyone at the event, including Frosty the Snowman.
In the public building next to the Municipal Building there were arts and crafts for children and their families to make and take home ornaments.
There was also a place for Toys for Tots donations to be accepted.
Lindsey and Dan Cleverly took their preschool aged son, Logan, to the Fulton Christmas Tree Jubilee.
They enjoyed Dunkin’ Donuts and hot cocoa, and popcorn from FFPL and then left.
They came back for the tree lighting and saw Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus.
The Mr. and Mrs. Claus came down South First Street on a lit up sleigh.
They stopped at the tree in front of the Municipal Building and the tree was lit by a previous mayor of Fulton.
Santa Claus invited children of Fulton up to him in the sleigh and gave them stuffed animals.
When asked how the event made her feel about her Fulton community, Mrs. Cleverly responded, “Good, it was a nice evening out. Everyone seemed friendly enough. Would’ve been better if it was on a Friday night though. I thought it was a nice way to bring the community together. That doesn’t seem to happen that often.”
