The Christmas Drive-Through on Saturday, Dec. 10: Your Shortcut to Santa

On Saturday, Dec. 10, you won’t have to drive the kids to the North Pole to see Santa. From 6 to 9 p.m., the Village Core will feature the Christmas Drive-Through, the light-lined spectacle packed with Yuletide surprises. The drive-through will culminates with a visit – and a gift – with St. Nick at the Big Canoe Fire Station.

Drive-through participants can follow the route that starts on Wolfscratch Circle, the road on the Lake Petit Dam side of the Racquet Club. The street snakes its way past the Big Canoe Chapel. From there, the route continues drive past the Postal Facility (on the right) before looping west toward the Fire Station. Celebrants will be greeted by Santa at the Fire Station before they depart via Wolfscratch Drive.

Please note that the Drive-Through route will be closed to through traffic starting at 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10.

With many motorists expected for this event, the start of the drive-through line will be in the three-tiered parking lot above the Playfield. Cars will be directed by staffers before entering the drive-through route on Wolfscratch Circle.

Though the narrow road between the Fire Station and the tennis courts will remain open to provide continued access to the Postal Facility, Property Owners are strongly urged to avoid the area at the time of the event.
