Webster Groves Parks and Recreation has agreed to assist Santa in making his pre-holiday rounds. Bundle up your babies, dress up your dogs, corral your kids! Santa will make a 15-minute porch or in-home visit at your house to hear first-hand exactly what you would like for Christmas. Feel free to make a list because Santa’s a bit hard of hearing and it helps jog his memory. Select your preferred visit time, but know that times are granted in order of response. (Service area is limited to Webster Groves.)
Fri., Dec. 16 OR Sat., Dec. 17
By reservation only
Fee: $30 per household

Join us for an evening with your favorite man in the red suit! Come in your pajamas, bring your wish list, and take a picture with Santa after dinner! We will have pizza, refreshments, and more! Parents remember to bring your cameras so you can take home this keepsake memory! Space is limited, and pre-registration is required!
Fri., 6 - 8 p.m.
Fee: Adults/Children 2 and up Res/Non-Res $10 per person (children 1 & under free but must register)
