Offering exciting experiences and classic holiday joy, the Town of Oakland is thrilled to announce “Santa’s Lane” is returning bigger and jollier than ever with more sparkling lights and new activities including an alpine slide, snow flurries, food trucks, music and more!
Presented by Duke Energy, “Santa’s Lane” will be held on Saturday, Dec. 2 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Oakland Town Center, located at 230 N. Tubb St. Guests will have the opportunity to sit with Santa for a free photo opportunity and kids will go home with a special treat from the North Pole, while supplies last.
With its quaint downtown, historic buildings and moss-covered oak trees draped in garland, bows and thousands of twinkling lights, Oakland during the holidays has been compared to a Hallmark movie.
