Here Comes Santa(s) 

It's that magical time of winter again: Christmas! And St. Charles Christmas Traditions on South Main Street in historic downtown St. Charles (South Main and Jackson streets; www.stcharleschristmas.com) offers a wondrous Christmas experience around every corner. One can meander through the red-brick neighborhood and talk to multiple Santas from around the world, Ebenezer Scrooge, or the Sugar Plum Fairy while Victorian carolers sing in the streets. Shopping, ice-skating, kettle corn and roasted chestnuts and carriage rides await your every whim. And on Saturday and Sunday, there's a Santa parade at 1:30 p.m., which includes the Lewis and Clark Fife and Drum Corps. St. Charles Christmas Traditions is open 6:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday and Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday (November 27 through December 26). Admission is free, but concessions and some activities require a modest fee.
Wednesdays, Fridays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 27. Continues through Dec. 26, 2009
