Pictures With Santa
On Friday, December 7, the day before the Christmas Parade, Santa will visit the Burnsville Town Center from 5:30pm to 8pm. Kids can tell him what they want for Christmas and have their pictures made with Santa for free. There will also be Caroling on the Square from 5:30pm to 8pm that evening.
Churches, civic groups, individuals and organizations spend time making floats, getting their cars ready, and bringing their horses downtown for the parade. It’s a chance for the entire community to come together.
