Greet Santa at the Hawthorne Hotel
The holiday spirit is in the air in downtown Salem with holiday wreaths, a holiday tree, window decorating contest, fantastic shopping, dining and Santa’s arrival. The kids go wild with excitement as Santa Claus arrives in Salem as he traditionally does on the roof of the Hawthorne Hotel. The Salem Fire Company is expected to assist him with their ladder truck. Santa’s arrival will be followed by a short stop for cocoa from and caroling at the gazebo on the Salem Common. The parade will then continue to Museum Place Mall for pictures with Santa.
