Santa Claus Comes to Town!

Town children sit on Santa's lap on Sunday and tell him what they would like for Christmas this year.

Every year, at Los Gatos Town Plaza Park, brings Santa Claus to visit local children.

This year, Santa came every Sunday for three weeks before Christmas from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

Parents line up with their kids for a chance to tell Santa what they would like for Christmas and little ones wonder if they should tell him if they were naughty or nice. 

Students from and schools volunteer their time as elves to help Santa Claus—Jack Russitano—spread the much-needed holiday cheer. 

Assisting Santa and his elves were Janet Sumpter and Janet Goodman, of LGS Recreation.

I've heard great reviews about this event, Gwen. Many parents so grateful that the town has sponsored these Santa visits in such a beautiful setting as Town Plaza Park. I think it's also wonderful that this event is free! Thank you for the comment!

The season is always brighter with all these wonderful children. A long day but well worth it. Ho, Ho, Ho! Santa

LGS Rec's Santa is amazing and one of the greatest that I have ever encountered. He truly creates a magical experience for the kiddies.

This event beats going to the Mall and spending $20+ on one photo with Santa. A free, outdoor experience that is a true gift to the community. Thanks LGS Recreation & Town for putting this event on!

My kids have been visiting THIS Santa for several years. He's soft spoken, patient, and takes time to really listen to what each child has to say. Thank you for making each child feel so special!
