A Visit from Santa
on a Horse Drawn Carriage

Sunday, December 12th
4:30pm – 6:30pm

Santa Claus is coming to town or rather to our neighborhood!
In partnership with the North Pole, the Wheatlands Metro District and 1320 Homes Real Estate has made arrangements for Santa to make an appearance in our neighborhood a few weeks before Christmas.

Due to his hectic schedule, Santa will not stop in the neighborhood but will drive by waving and wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.
He will be leaving his reindeer at home and instead will be pulled by a horse drawn carriage.  Santa will begin his journey at 4:30pm on Sunday, December 12th. 
Grab your cookies and hot chocolate and stay in your home all cozy and warm if you wish and wait for Santa to arrive in the neighborhood!

See the map below to see what route he will take.
Santa can’t wait to see each and everyone one of you.

Happy Holidays!
A very special thank you to:
for sponsoring the Horse Drawn Carriage Ride as well!
