Every Friday in December before Christmas, Santa Claus will make a stop in Dillon to warm up next to a roaring bon fire and listen to last minute requests before he rejoins his elves at the North Pole. It's a long, cold journey for Ole Saint Nick so we'll have plenty of hot cocoa and roasting marshmallows on hand. Sing along with carolers and get in the spirit of the season!
