Santa to arrive at Kent Station

Santa house to open for photos

Santa arrives at his cozy cottage at Kent Station this Saturday.

Families are invited to join the fun starting at 10 a.m. to help welcome Santa home for the holiday season. Enjoy holiday music by the Kent-Meridian High School choir, visit the Kent Police Department, which will have a booth set up, and greet Santa when he arrives at 11 a.m.

The Kent Station Santa house is open from Nov. 26 through Dec. 23, with limited hours the first few weeks. Santa photos range in price from $20 for a 5-by-7-inch shot to a full package for $45. Details and Santa house hours are online at

Families who come early can enjoy special discounts. Visit Santa on a week day during the first two weeks and choose either 10 percent off or a free downloadable image with a print package.

The Santa house is sponsored in part by Kigo Kitchen, Kent Station’s newest restaurant.

After meeting Santa, stop by the Giving Tree to pick some tags and purchase gifts for families in need this holiday season. The Kent Station Giving Tree benefits Communities In Schools of Kent. Unwrapped gifts can be returned in the big red box located outside the Santa house by Dec. 23.
