Santa in the Park is Saturday, Dec. 12, from 3 to 8 p.m. in Stevenson Park, 1100 S. Friendswood Drive.
There will be live musical entertainment, photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, a 40,000 pound snow hill slide, carnival rides, a petting zoo, and a Holiday Market (with more than 65 booths and free gift wrapping).
Following the lighting of the Christmas tree, see a spectacular fireworks display, synchronized to Christmas music.
Admission to the Park and live entertainment is free. A wristband is required for the following: amusement rides, snow hill slide, petting zoo, photo booth, train rides and face painting.
A special discounted wristband presale will take place during normal business hours, November 30 through December 10 at Friendswood City Hall, 910 S. Friendswood Drive. Bring a canned food item to City Hall for the Mary Queen Catholic Church Food Pantry and receive a $5 discount off a $10 wristband.
