Santa will be visiting Bluffton again this year on during their annual Santa Day on Dec. 10. A community tree lighting will be held at 6 p.m. at the park. The tree lighting has been a new feature to Santa Day, the first tree lighting was held last year as a way to accommodate Covid protocols. 

After the tree has been lit, all ages will be able to visit with Santa at the Bluffton Community Center, take a scenic sleigh ride around town, and warm up afterward with a piping cup of apple cider. 

Bluffton’s Santa Day started with the local Lion’s Club, but has since been a community-wide effort to spread Christmas cheer.
