FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
When the frigid air is too chilling, head indoors for story time with Mrs. Claus, cookie decorating, art activities, letter writing to Santa, and a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. Take a trolley ride between locations with the Rochester Trolley and Tour Company.
High atop Old City Hall is the safest landing place for Santa Claus in downtown Rochester and will need help getting down. To the rescue will be the Rochester Fire Department, with an assist from Mayor Norton. Be in the crowd to welcome Santa to the ground.
Everything will be all aglow when Santa flips the switch on the Peace Plaza’s giant tree. It will surely be an Instagram-worthy holiday moment!
Before he heads back to the North Pole, the jolly old elf will happily greet children who want to sit on his lap and take a photo with him.
