The eighth annual Fulton Street Fair Mule Auction on the west side of the Callaway County Courthouse attracted a big crowd and 18 mules that were auctioned Friday evening in Fulton.

The auction was conducted again this year by the John Payne Harrison family. John's son Jack served as the auctioneer.

The auction attracted 18 mules, and half of them were sold. Some of the owners had undisclosed minimum bids and decided to take their mules back home.
