Kick off the holiday season with Santa on Sat. Dec. 2, noon to 2 p.m. in the Clarkdale Town Park at 1001 Main Street. Children of all ages can visit with Santa, take photos with the guest of honor, make holiday crafts, play games, and enjoy hot cocoa with cookies. Santa leaves for the North Pole promptly at 2 p.m., so please arrive in plenty of time to get your time with him - and don't forget to bring your camera or cellphone to take your photos. The Town of Clarkdale offers this event FREE as a wonderful holiday tradition for children (and parents) to enjoy courtesy of the Town of Clarkdale and sponsor State Farm agent, Jennifer Griffin.
