ONLY A FEW VISITS LEFT BEFORE CHRISTMAS–Santa is pictured with his holiday crew following the Santa Parade held in Ruma last Sunday morning. Santa’s Village in Red Bud will be open for visitors this Friday evening, as well as for drive through visits on Sunday afternoon. Santa will then take his sleigh for a ride around Red Bud on Monday and Tuesday evenings.

Santa is finalizing his plans for visits in the area before he returns to the North Pole to prepare for Christmas.

This Friday night, Dec. 17, from 6 to 8 p.m., is the last regular night of the season for Santa’s Village.

Free activities at Santa’s Village include: visits with Santa, a petting zoo, carriage rides, cookie decorating, hot cocoa and cookies, balloon art, games and more treats to enjoy around the fire pits.
