When you pick up your kits you won't even have to leave the warmth of your car! Simply roll down your window and a masked volunteer will come to get your name, grab your reserved kit(s), and will either hand to you or place in your trunk. PLUS, costumed characters including Kirby the Kangaroo from Fox Communities Credit Union, Frosty the Snowman, and Pepe the Penguin will greet you from afar while you pick up!

Kits will include fun activities including: Gingerbread Cardboard Cutouts to decorate at home, Holiday-Themed Activity Books, Little Golden Books and more! Kits are intended for ages 3 and up.

When pre-registering, you will select the number of kits needed for your family (maximum of 4 kits) and a half hour timeslot that you plan to come and pick up on that Saturday. The timeslot will help us keep the cars moving as quickly as possible.

Virtual Visits with Santa

Visiting with Santa is one of the many highlights from our annual Holiday Fun Fest event, so this year, it is going VIRTUAL!
