When Santa arrives in Petaluma, he leaves his sleigh at home. Instead, he and Mrs. Claus make a uniquely Petaluma arrival. They sail up the Petaluma River on a Lind Marine tugboat and dock at River Plaza Shopping Center on E.Washington to the cheers of hundreds of excited children.


Starting at 11:30am, families will enjoy live entertainment while waiting for Santa and Mrs. Claus to arrive at noon. The Christmas couple are welcomed by costumed dancers from the Petaluma School of Ballets Nutcracker. Then Santa and Mrs. Claus make their way across the shopping center parking lot where they are available for family photos in their special tent. Be sure to bring your Christmas wish list!


Santa would love to spend all afternoon in Petaluma but he wants to have time to hear from good boys and girls all over the world, so he will have to be on his way to his next destination at 1:30pm.


Dont let the fun stop there! Keep the festive mood flowing by making the short walk to historic downtown Petaluma for Shop Small special offers and activities.
