The celebration moves indoors to the warmth of the community center where Santa and Mrs. Claus greet children and all who are young at heart. Families and friends are encouraged to bring cameras or phones to take free photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Complimentary holiday cookies, generously donated by the Battle Ground Lions Club, and free hot cocoa adds to the tradition and warmth of our community celebration.
