Santa House - 1st Thursday
Santa's House is brought to the southeast corner of the Iola square each year so that Santa may come and visit with the area children before Christmas! He will be visiting his home here in Iola for the first time this year on Thursday, December 5th at 4:30pm until 7:30pm. Bring the whole family and step inside his warm and cozy home to meet dear Old Saint Nick.
Also, for a special surprise on this day only Santa will also be bringing his REINDEER! Yep, this is a real, live Registered North American Reindeer that will be posted up just outside of the Santa House on the Square for families and children of all ages to come see.
While you're waiting to see Santa and his reindeer (or after), kids can climb aboard to ride on the Iola Kiwanis Club Train or the whole family can take a spin around Iola for a Holiday Lights Tour on Iola's Trolley - Fearless Fred sponsored by Personal Service Insurance, Inc. and Loren Korte. We also invite you to enjoy hot cocoa and cookies proivded by Landmark National Bank of Iola and candy canes provided by American Family Insurance Associates of Iola and Yates Center KS Kids will also be able to take home their very own Reindeer Feed provided by The Feedlot to guide Santa's reindeer to their house on Christmas Eve.
All of this is at no cost! Our amazing businesses and community members have pitched in to bring a stress-free, cost-free Christmas evening.
