No one knows how to make an entrance like Old St. Nick.

After helicoptering into Bend last month, Santa Claus is setting up shop in the Old Mill District now through Dec. 23 at SantaLand next to OrangeTheory Fitness. Dec. 8-10, Dec. 15-17 and Dec. 20-23, to be exact, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Families, come get your photos with Santa and pick a name from the Tree of Joy. Enjoy carolers or a free carriage ride. And swing by the Old Mill District’s Center Plaza on Dec. 12 at 5 p.m. and take part in our annual menorah lighting to mark the first day of Channukah.

The spirit of the season is alive in Bend and the Old Mill District!
