You better watch out. You better not cry. You better not pout. I'm telling you why. Santa Claus is coming to Whitesboro.

Santa Claus and his elves will be in town, making a list and checking it twice, for two days to celebrate the holidays. The Santa Claus tour, to find out who's been naughty or nice, will be December 19th and 20th from 9:30am to 4pm. Saturday, December 19th Santa and the elves will be on tour throughout the village of Whitesboro. Sunday, December 20th, it's off to the town fire district. So you better be good, for goodness sake.

The Whitesboro Volunteer Fire Department will have more details on Santa's big tour.

Santa at Sangertown

You can also visit with Santa at the Sangertown Square Mall in New Hartford for the holidays. He'll arrive in center court with his elves November 7th.

Everyone must wear a mask and follow social distancing rules. Reservations are strongly encouraged with walk- up visits available as space allows throughout the day.

“Ho, ho, ho! I’m looking forward to seeing all of the good boys and girls in New Hartford this year,” said Claus. “I know this will be a very different season for us all, but it will be a very special one because we all get to keep the magic of the season alive in a way that’s safe and memorable for everyone!”

Contactless Claus

Contactless Claus is coming to Bass Pro Shops too. Jolly ol' Saint Nick will arrive to a tailgate party November 7th. Kids can visit with Santa behind an acrylic Magic Santa Shield barrier. Reservations are required. Spots are limited to allow social distancing. Temperature screenings and face masks are required.

Virtual Visits

For those who cannot visit Santa in person, you can still Create Holiday Magic. Families can participate in a Zoom Call with Santa. There's even story time with special holiday gift boxes available.
