Santa appears from 7pm - 9pm every weekend during the Festival of Lights.
Santa Claus will be in the center of Sinnissippi Park to wave and say hello to your family as they roll through this year's Festival of Lights. Just before you get to Santa, there will be a red mailbox where you can put your letters to Santa. We have a special delivery courier that will deliver them to the North Pole. Make sure to include your return address so Santa and his elves can write you back!  Postage not required...the spirit of Christmas is all the postage you need.
