Santa and Mrs. Claus are headed to the Salem Civic Center to spread some safe holiday cheer in early December. The world-famous Christmas Couple will be in Salem December 5 and 6 from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. each day to take socially distant photos with you and your family members for only $10.

The back annex of the complex allows for vehicles to safely enter one side and exit the other while remaining completely protected by the weather. This set-up was used for Salem High School and Cave Spring High School graduations this past year and it was a huge success.

Families will drive their vehicles into the Salem Civic Center Annex, one at a time, exit their cars and have photos taken in a socially distant manner on the festive holiday set with Santa and Mrs. Santa. Each carload can have a maximum of six people and the cost is only $10 per carload.

All current COVID-19 Protocols will be followed, and children will not be able to sit on Santa’s lap. Children will be seated on a bench in front of the Christmas Royalty. The bench will be sanitized between each family group photo. Masks are required until the photos are taken, at which time, the children can take their masks off.

Photos will be made available for download between December 6th - 10th, so you can share them on social media and print for your personal use. Parents and guardians will be allowed to take their own photos, as well.
