It's a holiday tradition that no Rochester family should miss!

Immediately after Thanksgiving, Rochester is celebrating the Christmas season with the return of Here Comes Santa Claus. If you're not familiar with this tradition, the Rochester Downtown Alliance explains,

The Downtown Rochester cherished holiday tradition, Here Comes Santa Claus, is back for the 44th year! Enjoy a "warming house" at Castle Community from 4PM-6PM with crafts, treats, and trolley rides. Then, at 6PM, check out the thrilling Santa Claus Rooftop Rescue from atop Old City Hall by the Rochester, MN Fire Dept. Afterward, head to the Peace Plaza for a tree lighting followed by a meet and greet with Santa himself inside Shops at University Square.

The event takes place Friday, November 23rd from 4pm- 8pm. The schedule for the evening event is pretty full! It concludes with Santa ready for pictures at the Shops At University Square downtown.
