The local shopping mall is not the only place to bring your kids to see Santa Claus this year. While this may be the easiest avenue, some may be looking for a more creative and festive way to bring their kids to Santa. There isn’t a whole lot of holiday spirit at the mall outside of encouraging people to buy, buy, buy.
The Historic Courthouse in Stillwater might be your alternative route to share Santa with your children. On Sunday, December 16th, the courthouse is celebrating Christmas by inviting Santa, a family holiday sing-a-long, and refreshments. All of this will be taking place at the beautifully decorated courthouse; if you can’t get into the holiday spirit while hanging out here, you may need to check your pulse.
Local entertainer Karen Hillman will be leading the family holiday sing-a-long with her guitar at 2:15 p.m. Don’t know the words to the traditional holiday songs? No problem. Song books will be passed out so you and your kids can follow along. After that, at 2:45 p.m., Santa will be making a visit to hear all of those "good" boys and girls' Christmas wishes. Photo opportunities will be available on Santa’s lap, but without the cost of the mall photographer charging to capture the moment. So bring your camera.
The event is free and welcome to all on December 16th.
