Four-year old Jerzey was among the first of many visitors with Santa and Mrs. Claus at City Hall during the 17th Annual Christmas Stroll. After visiting with Santa & Mrs. Claus, Jerzey turned and gave everyone in Sheridan a big wave and said, "Merry Christmas."
To the delight of many and many, many more once they arrived at City Hall was this joyful couple dressed in red and white
That couple turned out to be none-other than Santa and Mrs. Claus who arrived in the special Burlington Northern Santa Fe train seen here.
Right this way kids!
Once inside City Hall it was all business for Mr. & Mrs. Claus as they visited with youngsters from the area starting with these three who were the very first in line.
