Santa Claus Basalt Neighborhood Parades       

This year Santa and Mrs. Claus are making two special trips to Basalt to wish area children Happy Holidays!!
Check out the parade route maps to determine the best day and time to come see Santa and Mrs. Claus and give them a shout! Santa and Mrs. Claus want to personally see as many of the Basalt area children as they can! If Santa does not come by your home, you may want to have an adult park your car along the parade route. Please obey any no parking signs. 

 To keep you and Santa safe – You must:      
• Wear your face covering unless you are 2 year of age or younger or have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing one.
• Keep at least 6 feet from another family
• Stay out of the street!       
• Stay inside if you are sick! 

After the parade on Friday, Santa & Mrs. Claus will be flying back the North Pole, but they will be talking to Basalt area children from their home on Saturday, December 12th; and Santa is coming back for his regular "Santa in the Hood" trip (more information below).
