Arab’s Santa in the Park
November 27, 2020 @ 5:00 PM - 8:30 PM
An event every week that begins at 5:00 PM on Friday and Saturday, repeating until December 19, 2020
Every year on the day after Thanksgiving, the magic of the holidays comes to the Arab Historic Village. For four consecutive weekends, and in conjunction with Christmas in the Park, there’s a man by the name of Santa in the Park, too. Visitors come from near and far to stroll through Santa’s Village, an over-the-top display of merriment and holiday splendor. You’ll meet Mr. Claus himself, so don’t forget your camera… there are photo ops everywhere you look.
After meeting Good Ole’ Saint Nick, head on over to Phillips’ Blacksmith Shop and watch ‘em work ~ it’s really neat to watch ~ just before stopping by Mrs. Lola Boyd’s 1890 Farmhouse for some cookie-decoratin’ and potato candy-makin’. Then make your way to Smiths’ Country Store to sip a cup of fresh hot cocoa and warm up…because just maybe, the most important stop you’ll make in Santa’s Village, will be the Smalley Grist Mill. Where else will you find a bag of fresh reindeer food to take home for Dasher and Dancer and the other seven reindeer? Those little guys need a snack after all that flying, too. Whew… I can’t even imagine.
All historic buildings will be open and adorned with holiday spirit, and filled with people making holiday history, so come capture the spirit of Christmas this season at the Arab City Park and the Arab Historic Village. Santa’s Village is open from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., weather-permitting, starting November 27-28, and continuing December 4-5, December 11-12, and December 18-19. Admission for Santa in the Park is $6 per person. Children under 2 are admitted free.
