Santa Claus arrives Saturday via helicopter

NORWALK – Santa Claus will arrive in Norwalk this Saturday but instead of a sleigh, he’s arriving by helicopter.

Santa is scheduled to arrive at Norwalk Town Square at noon this Saturday, Nov. 24. The shopping center is located at Pioneer Boulevard and Rosecrans Avenue.

Former television and radio personality Commander Chuck Street will pilot Santa’s helicopter for the landing, which will take place near the clock tower.

After Santa’s arrival, the community is invited to stay for a real snow play area, train rides, children’s craft activities, face painting, pony rides, a balloon artist, prize drawings, photos with Santa, and storytelling with Mrs. Claus.

Festivities will continue until 3 p.m.
