Santa and Mrs Claus will arrive by helicopter at the Carmel Valley airstrip on Ford Road, Carmel Valley on Saturday, December 14, enthusiastically greeted by children of all ages. Santa and his lady will then board a vintage fire truck and lead a parade through the village to the Community Center at 25 Ford Road where the day's festivities of food, fun and entertainment will begin. Families will have a wonderful photo opportunity to take pictures of their children visiting with Santa in the beautifully decorated hall, then everyone will begin enjoying the various events, including a petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, bounce house, arts and crafts and checking out the vendors. Many events are free, with wristbands available for purchase for some attractions. A special menu of dishes presented by Aqua Terra will be on sale, ready for visitors as they work up an appetite participating in all the activities.
