Santa is magical; that’s how he can be at the Holiday Stroll in Vergennes and Very Merry Middlebury simultaneously on Saturday, Dec. 3. You’ll find him with Mrs. Claus in Middlebury’s Triangle Park from 9-11 a.m.; reading at a special story time at the Bixby Library at 10:30 a.m.; and posing for photos at the Vergennes Opera House that afternoon.
The same day, he’ll be at Platt Memorial Library in Shoreham from 3-5 p.m.
At 5 p.m. that same day, Santa will arrive on a fire truck at Veterans Memorial Park in Salisbury, where folks will enjoy a bonfire, soup, sweet treats, a gigantic Christmas tree, and hay rides to the library for a Santa story time.
On Friday, Dec. 9, Santa will visit the Bristol Town Green for a candy cane hunt. Bonus: The amazing SD Ireland truck — a cement mixer decked out in thousands of lights — will be there, too.
On Saturday, Dec. 10, the Clauses will meet children at Maple Landmark Woodcraft (indoors this year!) This event is free but reservations are required.
And on Friday, Dec. 16, Santa will read stories to folks of all ages at Bristol’s Holley Hall at 3:30 p.m.
