This is a fun and FREE event for kids! Santa arrives at 10am. Don’t be late. We will have bells for the kids to attach to their shoes in the foyer of the clubhouse beginning at 9:30am. Santa arrives on a fire truck then transfers to a golf cart. He rides a lap around the clubhouse with the kids chasing him if they choose to do so. Santa and Mrs. Clause will be available for photos in the clubhouse immediately following the run. All participants will receive a number in the clubhouse foyer or just outside the clubhouse door. Santa photos are taken with participants in numerical order. There is no need to stand in line until your number is called. Specific instructions to download the Santa photos free of charge will be provided by the event photographer. Snacks and crafts will be available for the kids while waiting for photos with Santa. The Kids Jingle Bell Run is sponsored by the Carolina Lakes Community Affairs Committee.
