    Santas in the Park

    There is much "Claus" for celebration as the Old World Santas return to the Park after a year's hiatus. The hand-painted Old World Santas, first debuted in 2006, became a hallmark of the holiday season until 2018 when the plywood construction made the Santas no longer fit for display. The Santas were reproduced on long-lasting material thanks to generous community support of the City’s Save the Santas campaign.
