Thanks to COVID-19, Santa will keep his distance when he visits McCreary County on Saturday, December 5, 2020. Although Santa won’t be able to do the traditional “pictures with Santa” this year, he still wants to see all the smiling faces of McCreary Countians as he maintains a safe distance at the McCreary County Courthouse from 4:00 until 6:00 p.m. Be sure and drive-by the Courthouse in your vehicle to see and wave at Santa, Mrs. Claus, and some of their elves. Remember! Santa’s making his list, checking it twice, and looking forward to seeing you drive-by on Saturday. Later, at 8:00 p.m., Santa will reappear virtually on Facebook and Instagram (McCreary County Tourism) for a live, virtual Christmas tree lighting as he lights up the County Christmas tree. Don’t forget! All safety guidelines will be followed. Due to COVID-19, no one will be permitted to stop and get out of their vehicle. The event is drive-by only.
