Santa Claus makes pre-Christmas stops in Rocklin

-A +A
Santa Claus is making his way through Rocklin with lots of pre-Christmas opportunities to tell Santa what you want for Christmas. Mark your calendars for three chances to see Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick. ------ Santa will be making rounds to Rocklin neighborhoods atop a fire engine. He will be making appearances in the local, non-gated neighborhoods of Rocklin to visit children of all ages. Santa’s helpers will pass out candy. Santa asks that pets be left inside, as not to frighten Santa’s helpers and families remain on the sidewalks. If inclement weather permits Santa from making his scheduled rounds, the rounds may be rescheduled for Dec. 14 and 15. What: Santa visits neighborhoods When: 5:30-9 p.m. Nov. 30 through Dec. 3 and Dec. 7-10 Where: Southern Rocklin neighborhoods the first week; northern neighborhoods the second week Cost: free ------- If you’re kids dream of eating pancakes with Santa, don’t forget to sign up for Breakfast with Santa.

Families can enjoy a holiday breakfast with Santa Claus as the Rocklin Preschool and Rocklin Preschool parent volunteers prepare a breakfast menu of pancakes, ham, eggs, fruit, juice and a hot beverage, made possible by a donation from Nugget Market.
