Last week Christmas came to Kenai, and this Saturday Santa will be arriving at his next stop on the peninsula: Soldotna Creek Park.
Soldotna’s annual Christmas in the Park Celebration will take place on Saturday, Dec. 7 starting at 4:30 p.m. Hosted by the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce, the event will feature Sen. Peter Micciche, R- Soldotna, at the emcee for the night.
The event will also feature Christmas carols performed by the Class Act Drama Troupe of Triumvirate Theatre, as well as an appearance from Santa Claus, who will arrive on the back of a Central Emergency Services fire truck.
Cookies will be provided by Safeway, and Kaladi Brothers Coffee will be keeping everyone warm with hot chocolate and coffee. After the caroling has finished, Santa will be lighting the Christmas tree in Soldotna Creek Park. The event is free and open to everyone.
