Visit from Santa

December 21, 2019, 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm


Tell Santa what you want for Christmas when he visits you in person. Santa will be on a busy schedule and will only be able to stay for a few minutesjust long enough to hear your wish list and pose for a quick picture. Santa’s visit is only for those on the nice list so he cannot visit during parties. Each registered child will receive a special gift. Please make sure you are available while the sleigh flies around Villa Park between 4-6:30 pm and be sure to leave a light on and shovel the walk and porch-Santa does not usually go in through the front door! Santa visits available only to Villa Park residents.
