  • There will be NO 2020 Black Tie & Santa or An Old Fashion Christmas this year as we think attendance will be minimal due to COVID and there is concern for the safety of children visiting Santa Claus.

If your child would send a letter to Santa Claus in the first week of December with the child’s name, age, and Christmas wish list. Santa will return a letter to each child about a week before Christmas. Address it to:
