Santa Stops

Santa can be seen through the City of Murrieta on the dates listed below. The elves are not sure what time he will arrive but it will be sometime between 5pm and 9pm.

When you hear the sirens and the announcements, run over to the nearest star painted on your street. "Here Comes Santa Clause" will be your cue to get outside! 

Remember to bring canned goods and/or a new unwrapped toy! Santa will be accompanied by a caroling choir, Rudolph, and a Jolly Elf.
