Winter Sun Festival is an annual event in Moab. The Moab Half Marathon folks put on a 10k road race and the community has a variety of activities to enjoy, to ring in, the December Holiday Season. The Main Street merchants will have sales, handmade items are displayed at two location for crafts, Santa will make an appearance, here and there, so be on the look out for the red suit.
(By-the-Way, The Travel Council has a dedicated website for meetings, weddings and events now. Please refer to moabutah.info.)
