MONCKS CORNER, S.C.- (Thursday, November 14, 2019) — Everyone’s favorite jolly, red-suited man will be making a stop at Cypress Gardens next month. It will be his first visit to the park since 2014. Santa took a few years off while the park was closed due to flood damage.

On Saturday, December 7, 2019, Santa will be trading in his sleigh for a flat-bottom boat floating in the park’s swamp. He will also be greeting visitors on the front stage.

The event will also feature craft vendors, food trucks and children’s crafts. Additionally, Santa may not be the only staple holiday face in attendance. The Grinch might even be spotted sneaking around the park! 

Come enjoy all the holiday festivities with family and friends—even furry ones. Pets will also have an opportunity to take a photo with Santa.  Cost of admission is $10 for adults, $6.50 for seniors and $5 for students ages 6-17. Children ages 5 and under are FREE.
