Santa is on his way to Rochester

ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) — Get your wish list ready! Santa arrives in Rochester Friday night.

You’re invited to greet him as his sleigh lands high atop Old City Hall in downtown Rochester at 6 p.m. That’s when a daring rescue will help him get off the rooftop.

The fun gets started with a warming house and Santa’s elves workshop from 4 until 6 p.m. That includes story time with Mrs. Claus, cookie decorating, hot chocolate and more.

A tree lighting gets underway in the Peace Plaza at 6:30 p.m. Santa himself will flip the switch on the giant tree.

There will be trolley ride available between the downtown event locations.
