Santa Claus is coming to town, despite the coronavirus

He’ll follow social distancing. In one setting, children are invited to “call out” their wishes.

MARYSVILLE — It may not be a typical year, but Santa Claus is still making the rounds in Snohomish County.

Santa is scheduled to visit several Everett neighborhoods every Wednesday in December before Christmas, from 5 to 8 p.m. He’ll be in an Everett Fire Department fire truck.

North Everett is first on his list as he travels south each week. Find routes and schedules online at visiteverett.com.

Children and families are also invited to meet Santa in Marysville — while social distancing. He’ll be on a Strawberry Festival float at 1412 First St. four times: noon to 4 p.m. Dec. 13; 4 to 8 p.m. Dec. 17; noon to 6 p.m. Dec. 19; and noon to 4 p.m. Dec. 20.

Masks are required. Children will not sit on Santa’s lap but instead will “call out” their Christmas wishes, according to a news release.

Reservations are required. Call 360-659-7664. The Maryfest nonprofit requests a $20 donation to go toward scholarships and the Strawberry Festival.
