Kids get free pictures with Santa at Balmoral Park this Saturday - November 24

While Santa normally rides in on a reindeer sleigh, this Saturday (11/24), he’ll ride in behind a horse as he stops by Balmoral Park to visit with the kids. Instead of coming down the chimney, Santa will be coming down the home stretch as he makes his entrance to visit the kids at Balmoral Park.

Details of Santa’s visit to Balmoral Park are:

• 7 - 9 pm

• All kids are invited to wave to Santa as he comes down the track and then join him for a group photo in the Winners Circle

• Free digital photo of each child with Santa

• Free cookies and cider for all children who visit Santa

• Santa will read a Christmas book to all the children at 8 pm
