Santa is coming to Cloquet

The countdown to Santa’s Home for the Holidays has started, with the annual celebration set for the first weekend in December. Events actually kick off the evening of Nov. 30, with Storytime with Santa at the Cloquet Public Library, and with a free chili feed sponsored by the Cloquet and Fond du Lac police departments. On Dec. 1, enjoy a spaghetti dinner, crafts and photos with Santa at Queen of Peace.

Saturday, Dec. 2, is the biggest, busiest day. Events include breakfast, lunch and a huge craft show at Churchill School, plus pet photos with Santa at Cloquet Animal Hospital. The Cloquet American Legion is offering baked goods, coneys, and a silent auction, and Wood City Motors will have magic and cookie decorating that afternoon. Warm up with hot chocolate and s’mores at the fire station on Cloquet Avenue before the parade down Cloquet Avenue at 5 p.m., immediately followed by fireworks.
