While most city operations have moved out of the old City Hall, a new colorful festive holiday display has moved in to 3131 Biddle.
The Wyandotte Jaycees are setting up its Santa House in the back of the first floor, where the city's Engineering and Building Department used to occupy.
Brightly colored Christmas trees (including one decked out in Roosevelt High School's blue and gold) fill the area, along with large inflatable characters. A gingerbread house remains under construction. Finishing touches are still being put on Santa's area, as well.
Volunteers have been working throughout several evenings to get the display up and running in time to open on Saturday.
Jaycees President Jon Dehring said he's excited about the location of this year's Santa House because of its "ample parking, centrally located within the downtown shopping district, and near Santa's Mailbox."
When children come to visit, they'll walk through a maze of Christmas trees and will be able to draw pictures and write a letter to Santa, which can be put inside the big red mailbox in front of City Hall. Photos with Santa will be available for $5 or parents can bring their own cameras and make a donation of any amount to the Jaycees.
The Santa House will be open from 4 to 8 p.m. Fridays and from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturdays through Dec. 22.
