Even though there is a mailbox with a direct pipeline to the North Pole right in downtown Summit, the Big Man in the Red Suit made his annual pre-Christmas Eve trip to the Hilltop City December 2 to get a first-hand confirmation of just what's at the top of kids' wish lists this holiday season.

Santa's arrival on a City of Summit Fire Department rig was met by an eager throng, who also came to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, groove to some cool Holiday music, and watch the Town Tree light up.
