11/25/16: Santa Is Coming!

Tis The Season!

Our annual Black Friday event!

Every year, Santa rides to town courtesy of the Grayslake Fire Department, and turns on all of the Holiday Lights in Grayslake!

Although Santa turns the lights on right at 5:30pm, everyone is welcome to gather and enjoy the festivities prior to that.

Once the lights are on, Santa walks over to the Grayslake Oasis, where his elves have transformed our space into a wonderful winter wonderland.

All families are welcome to enjoy this FREE event where children can do arts & crafts, watch holiday movies, play games, and of course, share their wishes with the big man himself.

To help make sure every kid gets a chance to visit with Santa, we were able to convince Santa to start at 3:00pm this year.

So, feel free to stop in on your way to the tree lighting or on your way back from it. We’ll do everything we can to keep the wait brief, and make sure all children are able to have a magical experience!

2016 is the inaugural year, in conjunction with the Exchange Club of Grayslake. On October 29, the downtown area of Grayslake will be filled with people in costume provided with Treasure Maps. The maps will lead participants to various businesses who will be providing free gifts/items/coupons to the participants. The Grayslake Heritage Center offers ghost stories every half hour and The Oasis is “haunted” working with students and community volunteers.

The event runs from 5 pm to 10 pm and is family friendly. Treasure Maps will be $10 or family of four for $25. This is a combined fundraiser with Grayslake Oasis and Exchange Club of Grayslake.

Treasure Maps / Passports will be available for purchase at both The Grayslake Oasis as well as Joyce Campbell – State Farm!
