Santa Claus will once again take time out of his busy schedule at the North Pole to visit his headquarters at Pine Banks Park on Saturday, December 17th from 2-6 PM. This is Santa’s 73rd annual trip to see the good little boys and girls of Malden and Melrose! Santa will visit with children to hear what they want for Christmas (so make sure you bring your Christmas list) and will also pose for keepsake photos. Park Superintendent Kevin Benner along with the Pine Bank’s elves will be preparing Santa’s office and decorating the park with beautiful lights. Malden Councillor Barbara Murphy and Santa’s helpers from Ward 5 will be serving delicious hot chocolate and cookies. Don’t miss your chance to let Santa know if you’ve been naughty or nice!
