Saturday With Santa at Allegany State Park 2019

HO! HO! HO! The holidays are fast approaching and there's no better way to get into the spirit than by spending some time in Allegany State Park. Join the Environmental Education Department on Saturday, December 7th for a fun, festive, family event- Saturday with Santa!

The big day starts at 1:00 p.m.in the Red House area of the Park. Stop to hang a couple of ornaments on the big tree in the Red House Administration Building. There will also be plenty of crafts for the kids to make and take home. The Allegany State Park Historical Society will be holding a kids’ coloring contest and mailing letters to Santa in the lobby. The Red House Picnic Area, site of Santa’s Workshop, is open from 1:00- 4:00pm. Make a pine cone bird feeder, design your own button, and take pictures in the festive photo booth. Empire Animal Rescue Society (EARS) will make a special appearance in Santa’s Workshop with lots of adoptable Rein-Dogs and Christmas Cats!  The Red House Picnic Area Shelter will become a winter wonderland to make Santa feel at home during his short break from duties at the North Pole. He will be greeting and taking photos with children from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Don’t forget to make your way back to the Administration Building for the announcement of the coloring contest winner at 4:00 p.m.

The Friends of Allegany State Park and the Allegany State Park Historical Society will be on hand to introduce folks to their organizations. Light refreshments and snacks will be provided by J-Con Concessions and Friends of Allegany State Park.

In this, the season of giving, we are asking event participants to bring non-perishable food items that can be donated to the new Great Valley Food Pantry.  This is sure to be a great day! Don't miss out!
