Santa Arrives In Gillette
(Gillette WY) KOAL 106.1FM, the Rail Link and the Campbell County Fire Dept, welcomed the jolly one himself this afternoon. Santa's arrival officially kicks off the holiday season. The event began at 2PM and Santa made his way to the fire station on Rohan Road via helicopter, landing about 2:30pm. The early school release day guaranteed Santa had plenty of smiling faces to welcome him.
Nearly two hundred children and parents were out to see the KOAL Rockcopter deliver its visitor from the north. The Rockcopter circled the fire station and checked the wind....and then it checked it twice! Finally it came down in front of the cheering children and out popped the Jolly one himself, with one rather tall elf.
Santa was whisked away to take photos and wishes from the wide eyed little ones. Hot chocolate and cookies with Santa, and games were enjoyed by everyone. At least one Ho Ho Ho and a Merry Christmas was heard by this reporter.
Merry Christmas Gillette!
