Santa Arrives on Eighth Street the afternoon of Saturday December 14 to say hi to all the children at Taoti Creative (530 Eighth St. SE). Take your own photo, or ask a friendly elf to help.
From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., there will be face painting by Ms. Patricia, plus hot chocolate and treats from Ted’s Bulletin. Make your list at the writing stations with crayons and pencils and tons of paper, or write letters to Santa.
Can’t write yet? Santa gets it –just draw him picture and take it in to show him. There will be live caroling by Capitol Hill Chorale and some surprise blow-up characters for excellent photos with the animals for Grandma (remember that very large pink pig last year, and the giant penguin the year before)?
Don’t miss the ‘Before Santa Party’ at The Miracle Theater (535 Eighth St. SE)! It’s a Pajama Movie – Polar Express rolls into Barracks Row at starting at 11 a.m. Make it a (holi)day! Just wear your PJ’s to Polar Express (tickets $6.00) and think about Christmas morning and what you’d like to find under the tree. When the movie ends, cross the street to Taoti Creative and tell Santa yourself!
This is an all-indoor event, so you can visit Santa no matter what the weather!
