Santa Claus is returning to Statesville City Hall this holiday season, and he’s bringing his magic mailbox with him!

Starting November 27, the magic mailbox will once again make its home in the City Hall lobby, located at 227 S. Center Street. This mailbox can special express your letters to the North Pole without needing a stamp. If you include your name and address, Santa will send you a personal reply!

City Hall will be transformed into a festive wonderland, both inside and out, to welcome the community for a magical evening at Santa Central from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, December 8.

The community is invited to take photos with the Nutcrackers guarding the front of City Hall, or with Santa himself beside the 15-foot Christmas tree inside. Enjoy refreshments, arts and crafts activities for children, and tours of Historic City Hall, guided by the Victorian ghosts of Christmas past. Best of all, it’s free.

To ensure Santa receives your letters in time, drop them off at City Hall or mail them to Santa at P.O. Box 1111, Statesville, NC 28687 by December 8. You can also send your letters via email to info@statesvillenc.net. Special Santa stationary is available for download from the City’s website at www.statesvillenc.net/santa.
