50-year tradition in Shelburn continues with Santa bringing candy to town


SHELBURN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) -A tradition spanning more than 50 years continued tonight in Shelburn.

The city’s fire fighters once again escorted Santa through the town to deliver, not presents, but candy.

We’re told the big man in red had more than 500 bags of candy to give out tonight.

All parents had to do was leave their porch lights on to let Santa know that he was welcome.

We spoke with Shelburn’s safety officer, Anthony Miller about what this early visit from Kris Kringle meant to the town.

“It means the world to a lot of us. Me, I grew up in this town, and I remember having Santa Claus stop by on Christmas Eve every year. Then I got a little older and found out it was my dad, but now I’m in my 20th year helping out with this program,” Miller said.
