Osage City didn’t let the COVID-19 pandemic dampen its holiday spirit, as the town celebrated in “holly jolly” style to open the holiday season Saturday during Christmas on Market Street 2020.

Santa rode into town on a fire truck for his annual visit, and kids were able to have virtual visits with him to share their Christmas wishes. The downtown decorations and lights were switched on and the nighttime parade featured some “holly jolly” decked floats.

Organized by the Osage City Chamber of Commerce, the Christmas on Market Street was deemed a success, despite cancellation of some of the annual event’s popular activities due to COVID-19. Everyone hopes next year’s event will be back with normalcy.

The 2020 Christmas on Market Street parade winners, retail poker run, window decorating, and gun raffle are listed below, along with individual placings in the annual Jingle Bell 5K Run/Walk.
