Santa House

Santa’s Blue Island Park Tour Begins

December 2, 2017


For 12 special days, the hands of the clock tick – don’t miss out on your chance to deliver your Christmas list directly to St. Nick!
Admission to the Santa House is free; but if you wish to give something back to a project in need, donations for enhancements at our parks are very appreciated, indeed.

About the Santa House

The Blue Island Park District’s Santa House is a custom built Santa themed home on a mobile platform. The primary function of the Santa House is to provide accessibility to Santa Claus to the community at large. The house is large enough to accommodate Santa Claus, his staff of elves, and a family. The house is furnished with a waiting area with seating, coat hooks, Santa’s chair and a Christmas Tree. Even on the coldest days guests of the Santa House will have the comfort of fully insulated walls and proper heating.


Santa’s Blue Island Park Tour begins December 1st, 2017. Santa will begin visitations at 6 pm during each scheduled day. Santa will take his last visit at 8 pm.

Santa’s visits are open to the public. Children of ALL ages are welcome to visit Santa Claus on any of his visitations. Please see below for Santa’s schedule and park locations.

Santa will be available at each park from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm each day.
