The Griffon Block Party was a part of Holidays Downtown which featured a culmination of holiday-related activities for people to check out.

Horse-drawn carriage rides, Christmas caroling, and hot chocolate could all be found in the area. Staff at Missouri Western said their goal for the joint venture was to get more college kids to the downtown area. 

"I think it's a great opportunity for them to connect with the downtown St. Joseph," Marissa Steimel, Block Party organizer said. "Some of them aren't from here and so this is a chance for them to kind of explore they see the different businesses participating."

Families could also get their picture taken with Santa at the block party, activities ran till 8 p.m.

After fog across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri this morning we did see the sun for just a few minutes today but quickly the clouds moved back into the area and that helped keep our temperatures in the 30's. The clouds will stay with us overnight and on Tuesday with temperatures staying in the mid 30's for highs.
