The John Deere lawn mowers lead Santa around the park in Mankato

The first Christmas tree lighting in Mankato occurred Saturday in the city park.

Mayor Justin Schoonover and the city council thanked the Jewell County Community Foundation and the Greater Salina Foundation who made this event possible with the support of the Mankato city council.

Councilman Neil Becker, dressed as Santa, drove a Farmall tractor around the park led by John Deere lawnmowers as his reindeer.

City administrator Barry Parsons and councilman Chris Klos rode on a trailer which was attached to Santa's Farmall. They passed out candy to the children in attendance.
