Santa wraps up Sunday at City Park, taking part in another very gracious gesture.

King and Queen contestants of "The Once Upon A Toy Pageant" presented a check of over $500 to the Mid-Ohio Valley "Toys for Tots" program.

Several other volunteers took donations from people driving through the park, to see the Christmas lights.

"We're very fortunate and this a new venture where they put on a Toys For Tots Pageant, raised over $500 in funds in a check that they gave us and five bags plus in toys, for the first year, that's phenomenal," says Mid-Ohio Valley Toys For Tots Coordinator and Staff Sergeant, Cliff Hecker.

Made famous in the works of Doctor Seuss, The Grinch also showed-up at City Park, wishing a Merry Christmas to drivers passing through.
