Santa Arrives Friday to His New Castle and Holiday Experience at the Somerset Collection
Troy, Mich. – Santa will arrive to his remodeled castle at Somerset Collection’s new “Once Upon a Holiday…” experience this Friday, November 16.
The grand arrival begins at 6:30 p.m. with a parade of stilt walkers, jugglers, a caroling quartet and two townspeople, who will treat guests to roasted almonds. At 7 p.m., the Dearborn High School marching band will usher Santa into the Somerset Collection with holiday tunes, and beckon his appearance with the classic “Here Comes Santa Claus.” Santa will then arrive with Princess Celeste on a horse-drawn carriage and take his seat in the castle, commencing the holiday season. Santa will spend the evening visiting with guests while enjoying holiday music by the Dearborn jazz band until 8 p.m.
Santa’s Castle and the “Once Upon a Holiday” experience includes Santa’s workshop, where Santa and his helpers greet children with memorable photos and fun games. The castle is open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. The castle is closed on Thanksgiving Day and open on Christmas Eve from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., at which time there will be a magical Santa send off.
