Santa is coming in person to visit the families of Waynedale! On Christmas Eve from 12pm - 3pm, Santa and Mrs. Claus will slowly make their way through most of the Waynedale neighborhoods to give a wave to all good boys and girls.

🎄 Residents can find a map and times of Santa’s route here:

🦌 Santa has chosen the roads that would be the most convenient for families to see him from their front windows or step out of their homes and take a short walk to cheer him on as he rides by. Santa will be driving through the following neighborhoods on December 24 (at the approximate times):
- Indian Village (1pm);
- Sand Point & Belle Vista (1:20pm),
- Old Trail (1:35pm),
- Southwest Waynedale (1:50pm),
- Avalon (2:30pm),
- Lake Shores West & Lakewood (2:50pm),
- Lakeshores East & Winterset (3:15pm).

🕯️ Organizers recommend families bundle-up, mask-up, socially distance from other families and to stay safe while waiting for Santa. Times for Santa’s drive-by are approximate within about 15-20 minutes. Adults are required to accompany children who should stay on sidewalks (away from road) and should not approach the trolley and recommend being aware and careful of all traffic as the roads will have active traffic other than Santa’s Trolley.
