2014 Santa

Print PDF

Santa Arrives on 8th Street this Saturday, December 13 at 1:30 p.m. to the corner of 8th and G Streets, SE, in front of the Old City Bank. Rudolph has to get some practice in, so Santa will get a ride from our neighborhood fire department.

Don't miss it as Santa gets out of the firetruck and walks to his work shop. Kids and pets are invited to visit with Santa and tell him what they want for Christmas. There will be a photographer and parents can download shots for free.

Complimentary snacks will be served and children can enjoy the toy train set up. At the conclusion of Santa's visit he will hold a raffle for the train limited to boys and girls who visited at the event and entered their names.

'Tis the season!
