A Santa Photo Op in Highlands

You better watch out, you better not pout, you better not cry and I’m telling you why, Santa Claus is coming to Highlands, and he wants to have his photo made with you.    

That’s right, folks, jolly Old St. Nick enjoys a weekend getaway in Highlands as much as the next person. It’s the perfect place for taking a break from the hectic North Pole schedule and giving that Naughty or Nice List a final review in preparation for the Big Night.

Being Santa, and a bit or a workaholic, he makes his weekends here working weekends, taking time to come out and visit with the families and children of Highlands and offering them the unique opportunity to have their pictures made with him.  Many families make it a tradition to have an annual photo with Santa taken, and Santa himself enjoys seeing how the kids have grown from one year to the next.

This year, Santa will make his first appearance following the annual Christmas Tree Lighting at Kelsey-Hutchinson Founders Park on Saturday, November 25.  He will also be back on December 2 at the same spot after his annual appearance in the Christmas Parade until 3:00 P.M.  On Saturday, December 9 and Saturday, 16 he’ll be back at the Kelsey-Hutchinson Founders Park from 10:00 A.M. until 3:00 P.M.  His plans for Saturday, December 23, are a little up in the air and depend on whether or not he can get away from the North Pole that close to Christmas.

If you have questions about Santa’s busy schedule or the events that mark Highlands’ Holiday Season – the Olde Mountain Christmas Parade or the worship schedules of local churches – contact the Highlands Visitor Center at (828) 526-2112.
