Although this year’s event will look different from the past – we are excited that Santa Claus will take time out of his busy schedule at the North Pole to visit his Malden headquarters at Pine Banks Park on Saturday, December 19th from 1-3 PM. Due to COVID restrictions, this will be a drive-through socially distant event and masks are required by all.
This is Santa’s 71st Annual trip to see the good little boys and girls of Malden and Melrose! Frosty the Snowman, Rudolf, Christmas Bear, Olaf and Elmo will also be in the park to wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season. Park Superintendent Andrew Walsh along with the Pine Banks staff are busily preparing for Santa’s visit. Councillor Barbara Murphy and the Ward 5 elves will be handing out candy canes and collecting letters for Santa. Mrs. Claus has been busy in her kitchen and will serve delicious hot chocolate and cookies “to go” for all to enjoy at home. Don’t miss your chance to let Santa know if you’ve been naughty or nice!
Vehicles are to enter through the Pine Banks’ Office gate located at 1087 Main Street and will exit through the ball fields back onto Main Street.
