1:00 to 3:00 PM 

 

Hey, kids! Santa Claus is coming to town! Stop into Brenda’s Blumenladen on Dec 6 between 1pm and 3pm to tell Santa what’s on your Christmas list. You can even get a picture with Jolly Old St Nick himself.  It’s been told that after 3pm Santa will be visiting the downtown New Glarus shops, so if you forgot to mention anything you are dreaming of, you might just bump into him on the picturesque streets of New Glarus — and you won’t have to worry about finding underwear in your stocking this year. Whew! After you and Santa have everything squared away, how about letting the adults do some shopping for you while you enjoy fun activities at the Middle School?
