He must be taking a break from his sleigh, because Santa is going to be in the Shay locomotive at the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum on December 9, 2023, from 12 to 3 PM, to hear your holiday wish list.

Take an instant photo with St. Nick and make a super simple family-crafted ornament. Enjoy cookies and hot cocoa. Browse a holiday bazaar of local artisans. Admission to the Santa in the Shay event also includes admission to the Lumber Museum’s exhibit galleries, so take the opportunity to learn some lumber and forest history with your family!

Be sure to dress warmly and wear boots because Santa and the Shay locomotive are outside in an un-heated building. There could be snow on the ground too, so be prepared. Guest will also have to climb a short flight of stairs to make their way into the cab of the locomotive, but Santa can come out to meet you as needed.
