Bring your camera or smartphone and visit Springer Market Square over the next two Saturdays for a special meet and greet with Santa Claus.

The Downtown Kingston Business Improvement Area (BIA) invites everyone to celebrate the holiday season with the big man himself. According to a release from the BIA, Santa Claus will be in the square from 12 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 16 and Saturday, Dec. 23, 2023.

“Visitors are encouraged to bring their own smartphones or cameras so Santa’s Elf can take their picture with Santa. There will be a mailbox for letters addressed to Santa as well,” the BIA stated, noting that Downtown Kingston is also providing free horse-drawn wagon rides and Kingston Trolley rides both Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  

According to the release, as a special gift from the Downtown Kingston business community, and in partnership with the City of Kingston, parking in downtown surface lots and on-street parking is free every Saturday until Christmas.
