Get ready for an unforgettable morning at our Santa in the Park event! Santa is making a grand entrance on a fire truck at 10 am, creating a festive atmosphere that promises excitement and holiday joy. Gather your loved ones and be there to witness the magical arrival!

As you wait for your turn to share your Christmas wishes with Santa, be serenaded by Sax to the Max, a talented local high school saxophone group, who will be performing live to add a touch of magic to the atmosphere.

This event will operate on a first-come, first-served basis. No need for pre-registration; just bring your holiday spirit and get ready for spontaneous joy.

And here's a pro tip: be sure to bring a camera! Capture the magic with a photo alongside Santa, preserving the joyous moment for years to come. Plus, while supplies last, indulge in complimentary cookies and hot chocolate to add a sweet touch to the festivities. We hope to see you there!
