Santa Claus Crawl set for Dec. 3

Special to The Clinton Courier

Main Street Clinton’s 8th Annual Santa Claus Crawl is scheduled for Thursday, December 3, from 6 until 8:30 p.m.  The annual festive holiday event showcases some local favorite Olde Towne businesses. 

This year, the event will be kicked-off with the lighting of the City tree at 5:45 p.m. at City Hall, where attendees can pick up their event tickets.  In light of the pandemic, precautions are being taken to help ensure public safety, including staggered shop visits and altered food offerings. Participants will receive a commemorative Santa Claus Crawl event mug, a wrapped cookie from Meme’s Brick Street Bakery, and a food voucher good for dinner at 303 Jefferson or The Bank.  

The adult event includes a scavenger hunt-style tour from business to business in Olde Towne, with music and door prizes. After purchasing a ticket, participants will visit each participating business to shop Santa Claus Crawl specials, while also looking for the answer to the business’s unique question. A correct answer enters guests in the drawing for a fun door prize from the business.

After visiting each business, the participants will gather at Lions Club Park for live music and await a visit from Santa Claus, who will draw winners for the door prize giveaways. The door prize drawings will also be live-streamed on Facebook.  Turner the Train will be offering rides during the event, shuttling guests around Olde Towne. A long-sleeved event tee shirt featuring the 2020 Santa will be available for purchase in advance of the event.

Those who wish to attend are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance; a limited number will be available for purchase at the event.  Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the event.  

Tickets are available for purchase in the Main Street Clinton office at the Olde Towne Depot.  Tickets may also be purchased online at
