Lake Oswego children can say 'hello' to Santa - virtually
Lake Oswego community members won't have to go far to visit Santa Claus this holiday season — and they definitely won't have to wait in long lines.
The Kiwanis Club of Lake Oswego is hosting virtual visits with Santa via Zoom for the second year in a row. Proceeds will benefit Kiwanis Club programs, which help children in need.
"Younger kids are already comfortable with this platform, and you'll have the opportunity to make the visit magical," said Andrew Caswell, president of The Kiwanis Club of Lake Oswego, in a press release.
When people sign up on the Kiwanis Club's website, they will choose an available time slot and enter their child's personal information.
"Santa will know your kids by name, favorite things, pets, siblings and toys on their list," the press release read. "This is game-changing personalization that cannot be matched by the mall Santas."
While there won't be photos taken, families will receive a video recording of their visit one week or less after the visit.
Time slots are on Saturdays, Dec. 11 and 18, and are offered in 15-minute increments with visits lasting 10 minutes. Visits are $30 and include the video recording.
