The Claremont Parks & Recreation Department is dedicated to providing quality recreational facilities, programs and services to enhance the quality of life for the residents of Claremont and the surrounding region.


When Santa Comes to Town
Holiday Lighting of Broad Street Park
 
The Claremont Parks and Recreation Department has been hard at work preparing an alternative to the traditional Holiday event “When Santa Comes to Town” that traditionally takes place at Broad Street Park the Friday after Thanksgiving. Due to the pandemic, rising numbers in our area, and the large number of participants that this popular event draws, this year’s version will include the tree lighting at 6 PM with Santa coming by to help us bring in the Holiday season. This year, Santa will spread Holiday cheer while remaining on the fire truck to make sure he stays healthy so he can deliver presents on Christmas Eve.  We ask that all people who would like to attend the tree lighting wear a mask and follow all physical distancing protocols, including staying within their family groups.
 
Due to the large number of people that this event draws and the large line that forms, Santa will not be doing visits this year.  We have made arrangements for Santa to make a brief appearance at Broad Street Park to help us turn on the lights.  From there, Santa will be escorted by the Claremont Fire Department, Claremont Police Department and Golden Cross around Claremont, visiting as many neighborhoods as he can fit in during his busy schedule and while also keeping a safe distance. We ask that all people who would like to attend the procession wear a mask and follow all physical distancing protocols. Please refrain from approaching the vehicles in the procession when it arrives.
 
Santa will also be bringing his mailbox to Broad Street Park and encourages children to write down their Christmas lists and mail them directly to the North Pole.
 
Below is the official route Santa will be following as he visits various neighborhoods throughout the City.
 
We thank you for your understanding and doing your part to keep our Community safe and healthy during this pandemic.  
 

With COVID -19 numbers rapidly increasing, we will be taking extra precautions at the Claremont Savings Bank Community Center and mandate that all patrons wear a mask while not actively exercising while in the facility. 

We will continue to update our members as we make changes to our operating procedures to ensure the safety of our users.

We are currently finalizing the route Santa will be taking the evening of the event.  As soon as we get confirmation on the route from the elves, we will post the route on Facebook and the City’s website prior to the event.

We thank you for your understanding and doing your part to keep our Community safe during this pandemic.
