Santa Rooftop Rescue


December 20 | 5:30-7:30 PM
140 West Plaza on the corner of Church and Franklin Street

We’ve heard that Santa might find himself in a tricky situation in downtown Chapel Hill this December – and you’re invited to see how he makes out! Join us at the 140 West Plaza for holiday music, hot cocoa, and treats – and keep your eyes peeled for Santa on a nearby rooftop. We’ll call in the Chapel Hill Fire Department’s brave firefighters to rescue Santa and bring him safely down to earth. Stick around after the rescue while Santa and the firefighters greet children and hand out candy canes. Hot beverages and treats available for purchase from Tenco Coffee truck.
