Where to find Santa in Spartanburg

Posted on | No Comments

Searching for Santa in Spartanburg? It’s almost that time again, when the bearded man in the red suit seems to be everywhere. He really should be busy in the North Pole! We wonder “how does he do it?” To help him out, the elves are sending us his appearance schedule and we’re listing everything right here. That way, your child is sure to get his or her wishes heard by the big guy himself.

We’ll be updating this list throughout the Christmas season. Check back often so you don’t miss a thing!
