Santa Claus is coming to town, our town, on Saturday, November 23. He’ll glide down the streets of Grand Rapids in the morning as part of the annual Art Van Santa Parade. After your noses are numbed and your holiday cheer levels heightened, stroll over to the Main Library with the whole family to enjoy Santa’s Workshop!
All events will be located on Level 2 of the Main Library. We’ll have holiday crafts for all ages.
Be sure to arrive early for a chance to win tickets to the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre production of The Sound of Music. The drawing will be at 11:30 am in the Teen Area preceding the Edelweiss Club Choir’s performance.
10:30 am–1:00 pm
Peek into the Youth Computer Training Center for a chance to create some homemade holiday goodness!
Head down to the Storytime Room for our Saturday Pre-Reading Class. We will have stories and a visit from Mrs. Claus! Even though it is the busy season, she’s willing to tell secrets about Santa, the reindeer and the elves. Decorate cookies with Mrs. Claus following the pre-reading class.
11:00 am–12:00 pm
Meet Santa Claus as he strolls through the children’s area.
The Edelweiss Club Choir will be performing selections from The Sound of Music.
