Santa Claus coming to Jasper

The Greater Downtown Jasper Business Association is pleased to announce the details for Santa Claus to make his arrival in Jasper.

This annual event will take place on Friday – November 24. Santa’s arrival will brighten your child’s day and they can visit with him in his special house, too. You will capture the spirit of Christmas as you gather around the beautifully decorated downtown Square in anticipation of Santa, parading from the Fire Station to his special house in a bright red fire engine joined by a contest winner.

Santa will greet children at the Fire Station from noon until 12:45.

At 1:00 p.m., Santa and his elves will be joined by Jasper High School band members to parade to the large Community Christmas Tree on the west side of the Square and then to Santa’s special house.

Children are encouraged to dress up like Christmas packages and walk along (with their family) in the mini-parade.

As members of the band play Christmas music – – Mayor Dean Vonderheide will be on hand to welcome everyone with a special greeting.

Santa will then spend a few hours visiting with children in his special Christmas House until 3:00 p.m.  Be sure to bring along your camera and take pictures so that memories can be created for your little ones.

Children and families are also encouraged to bring canned foods and these items will all be donated to the Community Food Bank.
