Family-Friendly Holiday Event, Featuring Stylish Santa, Puppet Shows and More!
Saddle up your little reindeer for holiday fun at Canal Place’s annual SELFIES WITH SANTA event on Saturday, December 8th! Santa and friends will jingle their bells to signal the start of this year’s Reindeer Run for kids, where Canal Place will serve as the official start and finish line in the morning. Immediately following this festive activity presented by the Downtown Development District, you can settle in for Santa’s favorite snack (cookies, of course!), bask in the holiday glow of the 45-foot Christmas tree, enjoy a puppet show and meet the jolly man himself!
A Twist on Santa
Begin your day of free, festive fun with a trip north to visit Canal Place’s stylish Santa. Santa Claus will don a sophisticated twist on his traditional red suit with a red and green plaid coat, ready to pose for photos and find out each child’s Christmas wish from 10 AM – 1 PM. Santa’s elves will provide cookies for your hungry holiday helpers.
A Puppet Show
The magical surprises continue as Calliope Puppets presents a special holiday-themed puppet show full of familiar family stories with a festive twist. Children ages 3 to 10 will enjoy these lively, interactive presentations at 10:30 AM and 12 PM.
