UPDATE: We are delighted to announce that Breakfast with Santa and A Day with Santa will still proceed despite the forecasted heavy rain. We have made the difficult decision to cancel all outdoor activities, including the parade, to ensure everyone’s safety. However, Parks & Recreation staff have prepared a wide range of activities inside the Ben Robertson Community Center from 1 to 5 PM, including pictures with Santa, story time with Mrs. Claus, crafts, letters to Santa, performances, and milk and churros by Viva Chicken. Breakfast with Santa activities will continue as scheduled. The City Tree Lighting has been rescheduled to Wednesday, December 6, with activities beginning at 5:30 PM. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that you’ll still join us tomorrow for holiday cheer!
