Santa's Workshop Comes To Green Valley Park Friday


Magic on the Mountain events did not end with the spectacular Main Street Electric Light Parade.

Events will continue through the next two weekends.

Payson High School drama students will transform the bandstand at Green Valley Park into a workshop Friday night, so that Santa and his elves will have a place to work and play with children, from 5 to 7 p.m., Friday, Dec. 7.

"Payson Parks and Recreation asked the drama department if they wanted to help out, so the students became excited and started coming up with ideas," drama teacher Kathy Siler said.

There is no admission for children to visit Santa, the elves and the workshop.

One of Santa's top elves will greet children at the door and check the naughty and nice lists for their names.

Inside the workshop there will be elves assembling toys and maybe even wrapping presents.

The elves are ready to assist children in making scratchboard ornaments, Santa, out of stickers, and foam gingerbread houses.

Children will be able to visit the jolly old elf himself. If parents would like a photograph of their child with Santa to take home, the cost is $2.

The Musical Theatre Club will be selling tea, coffee, cider and hot chocolate for a nominal fee as a fund-raiser for the spring musical.
