Santa Prepares for Annual Visit!
Santa Claus is coming to town! Once again, Santa is planning his annual Christmas Eve visit to Swarthmore.
Newcomers to town, however, may be surprised to learn that in Swarthmore, Santa has been making this unique tradition of visiting the children, aged 10 years or younger, in their homes since the 1890s!
Santa arrives between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. on Christmas Eve to visit for a few magical moments. If you would like Santa to visit your child or grandchild, you can reach Santa’s elves directly by calling (610) 543-0901, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., or you can request your visit with the man in the Red Suit by visiting the website www.swarthmoresanta.com.
