Santa will be making a stop in Orange at the Heritage House Museum before heading to the North Pole to get ready for Christmas Eve.

For 36 years, the jolly old elf has been putting smiles on the faces of many children who eagerly sit on his lap to reveal their Christmas wish list.

This year he will be ready to listen with a twinkle in his eye from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Dec. 11 and 12 at the Heritage House Museum located 905 W. Division.

Parents can have a picture taken with Santa for a small fee or can bring their own camera too.

Carols will be sung to help put everyone in the Christmas spirit. In addition, refreshments will be served.

“We would like everyone to come join in the fun and see Santa,” said Linda Garrett, of the Heritage House.
