Santa will be stopping at his Sunbury home every Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m. and every Friday and Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m.

He is even going to visit with children on Sundays from 4 to 6 p.m.

But first he will be honored during the parade, which will start at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Raspberry Avenue. It will travel to South10th Street, continue to Market Street and end at Cameron Park around 7 p.m.

The Sunbury City Band will perform in Cameron Park from 6 to 7 p.m. as well.

Santa said he will stay until every child has been seen Friday night, and he will provide hot cocoa and cookies in the park.

He has also bring two reindeer to watch over things. Snowflake and Jingles will be available. Santa said they are looking forward to meeting everyone.

Sunbury Revitalization Inc.’s Lite Fest committee is responsible for Santa’s visit.
