Santa and Mrs. Claus to visit Silver Creek

Santa and Mrs. Claus are taking time from their busy holiday schedule to come to Silver Creek on Saturday from noon-3 p.m.

Children will have an opportunity to visit with Santa next to the warm cozy fireplace inside The Backline lobby, located on the Village Square in downtown Silver Creek.

Each child will have a chance to sit with Santa and Mrs. Claus and tell them what they are wishing for this Christmas. Every child will also receive a goody bag and a candy cane. Bring your camera to get a photo of jolly old Santa and one of his real reindeer.

There will be a hot chocolate and bake sale hosted by the Silver Creek Cross Country Booster Club. All proceed will be donated to our Silver Creek Food Pantry. The community is also invited to drop off canned goods and non-perishable food items to be donated as well.

The Kiwanis Club of Silver Creek is the sponsor of this annual free event with the assistance of area businesses and organizations such as Silver Creek Fireman’s Association, Masonic Silver Lodge, Hamlet Farms and Girl Scout Troop 20163.
