Listen to the Christmas music as you stroll through downtown.

Santa will be visiting with children in a safe and sanitized manner through plexiglass at The Busy Bean, 530 Wilborn Avenue, from 1-4 pm. In order to enter, everyone must be masked and practice social distancing. Once children are seated to speak with Santa, they may remove their mask.

The chair in front of Santa will be sanitized after each visit. There will not be a professional photographer on site, but you are welcome to bring your phone or camera to capture this moment.
