We Now Know When Santa Claus is Coming to Rochester, Minnesota

I can tell that Christmas is just around the corner because Scheel's has decorations up, my neighbors have their gorgeous lights wrapped around trees and turned on.  And, yes, there is news that a pretty famous radio station known as "Rochester's Christmas Station" is getting ready to flip on over to Christmas too.  But probably some of the biggest news though is that Santa is coming to town!

Save the date because the big guy in the red suit is coming to downtown Rochester on November 26th, 2022.
