Santa arrives in Nelson Friday
Get ready for Santa Claus.
The man in the red suit is making a guest appearance in the Heritage City Friday (December 6).
Santa’s arrival, set for 6:30 p.m. on a Nelson Fire Department truck, is part of the Elf Walk.
Inspired by the flash mob movement, which involves people assembling in a designated area for a spontaneous act of performance art, Elf Walk invites Nelson to embrace their inner Elves and dress up for the evening’s festivities.
Elves are invited to head down to Baker Street starting at 5:30 p.m.before Santa’s arrival.
The Rotary Club will be serving up sausages, burgers and hotdogs, there will be hot chocolate and cider, a best dressed Elf contest for the younger Elves.
Then, shortly after 6 pm., the Elves will gather to parade down Baker to meet Santa, who will once again ride into town with the Nelson Fire Department, and march him up for the tree lighting at 6:30 p.m.
Santa’s round trip from the North Pole to Nelson is being sponsored by The Nelson Daily.
