Santa is Visiting Little Shop!

December 11th and 12th 3 PM to 5 PM

Santa is taking the weekend off from North Pole Christmas preparations to visit Little Shop! He will be here on Saturday, December 11th from 3 PM to 5 PM and then AGAIN on Sunday, December 12th from 3 PM to 5 PM.

Bring the family out to meet Mr. Claus in our outside vestibule, and remember to bring your letters to Santa! Registration is required to attend and costs $5 per family of four. Each family will receive a $5 Little Shop gift card to use that day or at a later date.

When registering, please be sure to pick which day you would like to attend. Three days prior, you will receive an email with specific instructions on when to join the line to meet Santa.

Families are invited to bring canned or non-perishable food items which will be donated to DEAM (Decatur-Area Emergency Assistance Ministry) to help provide food for those in need.

Let's keep everyone safe and wear our masks as well as maintain adequate social distance. In order to keep him safe and ready for Christmas Eve, Santa will be behind a table. However, socially distanced photographs are still permissible. Thanks in advance, and Merry Christmas!
