How to get a letter to Santa from Palm Beach Gardens


Highlights

Downtown at the Gardens added a new mailbox and letter-writing station.

Santa will call children whose parents drop a letter in a mailbox outside the North Palm Beach library.

Santa writes back to children who mail letters from Palm Beach Gardens.

Children who are desperate to get their Christmas lists to Santa can drop them in the mail at a new box at Downtown at the Gardens.

They can bring letters from home or take advantage of a letter-writing station at the Carousel Court.

“For many of our guests, writing letters to Santa is an annual tradition. We are pleased to provide a location where families can drop off their letters while enjoying the festive lights and holiday fun available all season long,” said Marketing Manager Erin Devlin.

The mailbox is available dawn to dusk daily through Christmas Eve.

Children can also take rides on a Downtown Express Holiday Train that operates 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Santa accepts mail from at least three other boxes in North Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens.

Santa personally answers the letters submitted to the boxes at the Burns Road Recreation Center, 4404 Burns Road, and the Riverside Youth Enrichment Center, 10170 Riverside Drive, in Palm Beach Gardens. The mailboxes will be available Dec. 1 through Dec. 16.

Children and their parents can’t miss a green mailbox with red and white striped legs and glittery holiday designs outside the North Palm Beach Library, 303 Anchorage Drive. Santa will call children to chat with them about their wish lists and behavior if parents drop a form in his mailbox.

The mailbox will be there Dec. 1 through Dec. 17. Santa will make calls 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 18, 19 and 20.

The library and all North Palm Beach recreation buildings have the forms. The program is for children 2 to 8 years old.
