I'm really excited to take my kids to see Santa this year. Last year we Zoomed with him and that was OK but definitely not the same as an in person visit. Santa is coming back to Rochester and will be set up at various locations around town for the next month .

Check out the Santa Tracker below to find out where and when to meet him and Mrs. Claus and send me a message if you know of any other places he'll be making appearances at.

Several weeks ago, The Rochester Downtown Alliance announced their annual “Here Comes Santa Claus” event will return to its traditional format with Santa being rescued and Mrs. Claus reading stories on Friday, November 26th.

Kanika Couchene, RDA director of events and strategic partnerships, said, “This is Rochester’s longest-running holiday tradition and continues to bring many people joy. Being able to enjoy it safely while keeping the spirit of the event alive is our top priority. We are thrilled to be able to bring back the magic and cheer of this event in 2021 for our community.”
