- Take pictures with and write letters to Santa;
- Participate in story time or a magic show;
- Lace up their skates and glide along on an artificial ice rink;
- Hop on a saucer sled and go for a ride on the snow slide;
- Let out some holiday energy in a bounce house;
- Enjoy face painting with Ana and Elsa from Frozen;
- Take part in holiday cookie and ornament decorating;
- Enjoy a petting zoo and trackless train; and
- Enter gingerbread houses created at home for a chance to win a $100 gift card and holiday ham (participation is free, but registration is required).
This year, the City of Maricopa will also hold an inaugural Santa Run – a 5k run with a one-mile walk option. Every participant will receive a full Santa suit upon registration, and anyone who beats the Grinch will receive a free hot chocolate!
