Today is the day the jolly old fat guy makes his first appearance of the year in Soulard. He'll be at Soulard Station up on 12th street tonight from 6pm-9pm.
The Soulard Restoration Group's Residential Promotion committee is putting on this event. It'll be a kid-friendly event with free hot chocolate and Christmas cookies. There will also be beer and wine available for a small donation.
Bring your kids, dogs, cats, roosters or fish up to get their picture taken with Santa free of charge.
