The first of three Saturday visits by Santa sponsored by Main Street Charles City is this weekend.
Santa arrives in Central Park at 3 p.m. for wagon rides with Santa until 6 p.m. Events Coordinator Joanna Thompson says while advance tickets for the rides have sold out, there’s still plenty of Santa-related activities for kids to take advantage of.
Thompson adds that Santa will be also at his Santa house from 4 to 6 p.m. on the 11th and 18th. She says there will be about 300 treat bags available this Saturday for the kids as Santa festivities get a “reboot” after being limited in 2020.
Thompson says in addition to Santa’s arrival this Saturday, McCoy Smoothies will have hot chocolate and the Cedar Valley Express food truck will be on site from 2 to 7 p.m.
