Santa Claus Is Coming To Old Town. On Saturday, Dec. 16 from 9 a.m. - Noon at Alexandria’s City Hall Market Square, Alexandria Transit Company (DASH) and Santa Claus, invite you to join us for a fun-filled morning of free photos with Santa courtesy of Jackie Garcia Photography.  All children will receive a special gift from Santa! Goodies Frozen Custard & Treats will be on-site brewing up delicious hot apple cider to go with some of Santa’s favorite treats!

The DASH elves have been hard at work preparing Santa’s shiny King Street Trolley, which will magically turn into a wonderland of Santa’s Workshop at 9 a.m.. Santa will kick his visit off by taking a photo with Alexandria’s City Council, and then settle in to greet visitors and hear Christmas wishes! At noon, St. Nick will whisk away to the North Pole to finish making toys for the good boys and girls of Alexandria. Stop by to share your Christmas Wish List with Santa, enjoy a photo, nibble on some delicious Goodies and remember to bring your new, unopened toy donation for the Alexandria Community Toy Drive!
