Santa with Soul is making his annual visit to the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia in Jackson Ward to ask wide-eyed children their holiday wishes and to spread good cheer.
The jolly, bearded North Pole resident is scheduled to visit the museum’s annual holiday open house from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5.
Location: 00 E. Clay St.
Children can have free photographs taken with Santa at the event sponsored by the Historic Jackson Ward Association. People also can make tree ornaments and other decorations to take home.
Holiday music and refreshments also be a part of the festivities.
Admission to the open house is free to the public.
The Clay Street museum building is open only for special events while the castle-shaped Leigh Street Armory, located in the 100 block of West Leigh Street, is undergoing an $8 million transformation to be the new home of the Black History Museum and Cultural Center. The new building is expected to be complete in January.
