Santa Day in Memphis This Saturday

Santa is coming to town this Saturday as the Memphis Area Chamber of Commerce, the Memphis Community Players and the Wallace W. Gillespie Memorial Post #4958 of the V.F.W. are joining forces to welcome St. Nick.

The Memphis Theatre will host the traditional Christmas matinee for children at 1:30 p.m. There is no admission fee, but patrons are asked to bring non-perishable food items for donation to the local food pantry.

Following the conclusion of the movie, Santa Claus will be arriving atop a Scotland County fire truck. Kids will be able to join Santa, riding the fire trucks around the square before stopping at the V.F.W.

Santa will be taking wish lists at the V.F.W. and handing out treats courtesy of the MACC and the V.F.W.

If he sticks around late enough Saturday, Santa will be able to help the MACC judge the annual Christmas decorating contest. The deadline for entry in the contest is Friday, December 14th. Nominate entries at the Memphis Democrat. MACC judges will view the entries Saturday evening and announce the winners of more than $200 in prizes.
