Santa visits Changing Hands for storytime by the fireplace before he hops on the "Phoenix Solar Express" (otherwise known as the light rail).
Bring your camera for pictures with Santa after the story. Kids can craft their own percussion instruments and Random Acts of Holiday Kindness advent chains. Enjoy a hot chocolate from our Make-Your-Own Hot Chocolate Bar! Crafts and Hot Chocolate provided for free.
Afterwards, join Santa and his drumline as they hop aboard the "Phoenix Solar Express" to continue their journey. The "Phoenix Solar Express" ends at CitySkate to watch Santa and Phoenix city officials turn on the lights for the holiday tree at the rink.
