Santa Claus will be available from 6 p.m. at the gazebo to sit and meet with children, where they will have the chance to whisper their wishes in his ear.

Also under the gazebo, there will be hot chocolate, and sugar cookies will be available under the Country Grocer tents. Vendors will be selling their wares in a Chrismtas market.
