With coronavirus still in full force, several changes will be made this year to ensure the safety of all participants.

  • In accordance with local mask orders, everyone is required to where a face covering in addition to maintaining social distance.
  • In between visits, enhanced cleaning will take place.
  • Guests will not sit on Santa’s lap but will instead sit on large gift boxes in front of Santa.
