Letters to Santa

Parents, grandparents and children alike will love this magical addition to our community. Beginning December 1st, 2023 through December 18th, 2023 we will be accepting letters to Santa Claus at the Town Clock in Downtown Manitou Springs. Drop off your letter by December 18th to ensure that Santa will be sure to visit your child during his travels this Christmas season! He is very busy this time of year.
