Miracle on Mercantile Way

Join us for an afternoon of family fun with activities for all ages, pictures with Santa, and more. Don’t leave early, Santa will turn on the first holiday light show at 5:00 p.m. for everyone to enjoy!

Activities include photos with Santa with a professional photographer*, cookie and ornament decorating, caricature and balloon artists, carnival games, and more! Enjoy hot chocolate, holiday popcorn, and take your own photos at the holiday inspired vignettes.  

Attendees are encouraged to bring an unwrapped toy for the Toy Drive that benefits the families of our adopted Marine Battalion.  Food will be available for purchase at restaurants in the Mercantile West shopping center.

*Santa Photo Pass (limited availability):
In an effort to eliminate long wait times, families may be provided with a Santa Photo Pass.  Passes will be distributed one per family from the Santa Passes booth beginning at 1:00 p.m.  Each pass will have a picture and group #.  Once your picture/group # is called, you may proceed to the Santa Photo line.
