You can get a photo of the kids with Santa on Saturday, December 3, at Fair in the Square from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saint Nick usually picks that bench by the Verona Public Library as his spot at the fair and since this is a DIY Santa shoot, remember to bring your camera. The big guy will also ride in to the center of town on a big fire truck around 4:30 p.m., and there will be plenty doing on and around the square to help you wait for his arrival.
But Fair in the Square isn’t the only place to see Santa this season. He’ll be posing for free pictures with the kids at Terry’s Family Pharmacy from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and the store, which is just east of the town square, is also planning refreshments, a drawing and in-store specials. If you’re out of town on Saturday, you better not pout or cry: Santa will be back at Terry’s on Saturday, December 10 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and again on Thursday, December 15, from 4 to 7 p.m.
OK, but Verona being Verona, your family’s schedule might be so full that none of those dates work. You are still going to be OK. Our friends over at Barista Kids have made a list of every possible Santa photo-op from here to Short Hills. (We’re assuming they also checked it twice for the obligatory naughty/nice screening.)
UPDATE: One of the Verona Fire Department elves has just reported that Santa will be touring the entire town of Verona on a fire truck on Sunday, December 18!
