Santa Claus is coming to town!
The Parks Department will once again be hosting Santa & Mrs. Claus at the annual Santa House.
While waiting for your sleigh to arrive, you can enjoy the warmth of the Bath House where there will be coloring, and refreshments available for purchase. Also at the Red Brick we will be showing Christmas Movies, as well as providing some crafts for the kids to do at a minimal cost. Once your sleigh arrives it will take you on a wonderful ride to the top of the hill; once you reach Santa’s House you will be able to visit with Santa to tell him what you want for Christmas and Mrs. Claus will read you a Christmas story. Santa’s elves will be passing out treats too! Be sure to bring your camera so you can take lots of pictures with Santa, Mrs. Claus, and their elves!
$2 for visitors 6 and above
5 and under are FREE!
Thursday, Friday & Saturday
An equinox only happens twice a year. It marks the beginning of Fall and Spring seasons. Celebrate the coming of the Spring season by taking a hike around the lake at Spring Mill State Park with Tony. Learn fun facts about the lake and the equinox while you enjoy the nice weather.
