There’s a ton of great family fun planned in the West Jordan community. The West Jordan City Journal has tried to round up information on as many as we can below.
On Dec. 6 from 11-2 p.m. Santa will be at the Viridian Center, 8030 South 1825 West, to bring some holiday cheer. The event is free to the public.
“Everyone is welcome to bring their own cameras and take pictures with Santa, and we’ll also have a professional photographer taking pictures that will be available for purchase,” Viridian Center Manager Tyler Curtis said.
Additionally, the West Jordan Chamber of Commerce has invited several local merchants to participate in the event. There will be a small village of shops set up near Santa that will be made up of entirely of West Jordan businesses. The community is invited to come join the celebration.
That evening, the festivities will continue at the Viridian Center with the annual West Jordan Arts Council Christmas Concert from 6 to 8 p.m.
