Santa will greet kids and families on Bryn Mawr CTA Red Line Stop on the South Side and lead the North Pole Parade along Bryn Mawr on his way to Lytle House at 5517 N Broadway! The parade will have several stops at local businesses along Bryn Mawr where special activities await to get everyone in the holiday spirit. To help the crowd stay warm and cheery, Lakeside Pride Music Ensemble brass band will keep the music flowing throughout the stops. Once the crowd and Santa arrive at Lytle House, families, residents and eager holiday enthusiasts will line up to take pictures with Santa.
The Edgewater Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a toy drive during the Northside North Pole Parade as well. All residents and community members can drop by Lytle House between 4pm – 6pm on Saturday, December 1 and drop off toys in the labeled depot box. Bring new, unwrapped toys to brighten up a child’s holiday season.
The Northside North Pole’s Toy Drive will donate all items to Edgewater’s very own Care for Real. This year the Toy Drive will contribute all items to Care for Real’s Holiday Toy and Gift Card Drive. Monetary gift certificates with values of $10 or higher are also welcomed to be dropped off at the Lytle House during the event.
The best part of the Northside North Pole Parade is that’s it’s TOTALLY FREE! Anyone and everyone can join in at any point along the parade on Bryn Mawr or stop on by at Lytle House to take pictures with Santa. All treats given by businesses along the parade stops are also complementary.
Please note: The first digital picture with Santa is free. If you want additional or printed pictures, there’s a $15 fee to be paid directly to the photographer.
