Here Comes Santa Claus

Since we can’t have Santa in Old Town, we’ll bring Santa to your neighborhood.  Santa, Frosty and Rudolph will spend 13 nights visiting over 40 neighborhoods while social distancing in a holiday convertible. If it is raining, Santa will still be visiting you, but the top of the convertible will be on. We will encourage residents to stand in their driveways or nearest cross street in their jammies, glow necklaces and bring their holiday cheer.

Maps are listed below for each night. You can also view a online Virtual Map of all nights as well.
