Persons wishing to watch the procession are asked to park in the parking spots at the park near the playground and football field and around the park in single file to the side of the road and remain in their vehicles. People can also park along Jefferson Street to watch the procession. Once Santa Claus is at the gazebo, the official Christmas tree will be lit and cars can then proceed around the park to see Santa from the safety of their vehicles. Vehicles can stop briefly at the gazebo to talk the jolly old man and drop off their letters. Kiwanis members will be handing out a goodie bag for each child in the vehicle as vehicles leave the park.
Costumed characters will be strolling around to talk to and wave at the kids from a safe social distance.
The Kiwanis are asking the community businesses and individuals to help light up the park for the night in Christmas decorations.
