While Rudolf and his fellow reindeer remain at the North Pole doing their final push ups and tread mill exercises in preparation for the big Christmas Eve world tour, Santa has booked a seat in a Helicopter for Saturday, December 8th, when kids from all over the region are invited to give him their wish lists at The American Helicopter Museum’s Annual SantaFest!

This hugely popular event begins at 10am, and everyone will be able to watch Santa arrive at 11am. He’ll be joining Mrs. Claus in greeting all the good girls and boys, hearing wish lists and distributing goodie bags. He’ll visit with each child in his colorful Museum workshop.

  • Author Linda Kerschner, will read her book, Cheerful Chopper to the Rescue
