Christmas in the Wilds

Visit Emporium on December 12th for the annual Christmas in the Wilds event!

Start with breakfast with Santa, sit on his lap and tell him everything you want for Christmas!  Then spend time browsing the downtown shops for unique gifts for the special people in your life.  Along the way, artisans will be demonstrating their work.

At noon, catch the big holiday parade along 4th Street with giant Macy-style balloons.  If it's chilly, you can warm up with hot food, drinks and enjoy cookies and candy.  Children will love seeing Santa's real live reindeer too!
