2019 Santa’s Arrival & Small Business Saturday
Saturday, November 30, 2019 | 11:30 am to 1:30 pm
River Plaza Shopping Center, 72 E. Washington St, Petaluma
FREE to watch (bring cash for purchase)

The Christmas couple are welcomed by costumed dancers from the Petaluma School of Ballet’s “Nutcracker.” Then Santa and Mrs. Claus make their way across the shopping center parking lot where they are available for family photos in their special tent. Be sure to bring your Christmas wish list!

Santa would love to spend all afternoon in Petaluma but he wants to have time to hear from good boys and girls all over the world, so he will have to be on his way to his next destination at 1:30 pm.

Keep the festive mood flowing by making the short walk to historic downtown Petaluma for Shop Small special offers and activities.
