The JWC will be assisted by volunteers from institutions and organizations around the Fairfield community, including Notre Dame High School, Wakeman Torch Club, numerous troops of Fairfield Brownies, Girl Scouts and Cadettes, as well as students from several local religious education classes.

Children will be able to make a special holiday craft to take home, listen to stories and experience entertainment as they wander the halls and rooms of Santa’s House. This year’s entertainment schedule will feature dance performances by Flash Pointe Dance, children’s music and movement, Irish dancing, martial arts demonstrations and more. Also, new this year, is “Santa’s Salon,” which will feature face painting, nail painting and temporary tattoos courtesy of the Fairfield Ludlowe High School Cheerleading Squad.

Young guests of Santa’s House may share a cookie with Mrs. Claus,  check out the model train display and get homemade treats at the Gourmet Bake Shop.  There will also be a raffle room, and families may also take home a complimentary bag of reindeer food to help guide Santa and his reindeer to their homes on Christmas Eve.

Each child may have a personal visit with Santa, when he or she can share a wish list. Parents may take pictures.
