JEFFERSON PARK — Santa Claus is coming to Jefferson Memorial Park for an event with lights, music and hot chocolate.
Residents can get photos with Santa, enjoy Christmas music, snacks and more 6-8 p.m. Wednesday at 4822 N. Long Ave. The park will be lit up starting at 6:30 p.m., according to the Jefferson Memorial Park Advisory Council.
Like last year, there will be a musical light show at The Esdohr House. There will also be inflatables and cutouts for fun holiday photos, said Frank Suerth, a member of the Jefferson Memorial Park Advisory Council organizing the event.
Folks can expect hot chocolate, cookies, candy and traditional holiday music. The council is taking suggestions for Wednesday’s music playlist; ideas can be sent to the group via Facebook or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Along with all the traditional holiday favorites, we’ll be sure to play some of the requests we’ve received, like ‘My Gift is You’ by Gwen Stefani and ‘8 Days of Christmas’ by Destiny’s Child,” Suerth said.
