Elf Night at Dorothy B. Oven Park
December 14, 2023 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and a whole host of elves will make an appearance at Dorothy B. Oven Park’s annual Elf Night on Thursday, Dec. 14, from 5:30-8:00 p.m. Over 150,000 lights will twinkle against the night sky, transforming the park into a winter wonderland fit for Santa and all his arctic friends. Visitors are invited to take a stroll around the decorated grounds and let Santa know all the items on their holiday wish list.
If you’d like to visit Santa and Mrs. Claus, check-in on the front lawn upon arrival to be assigned a ticket number, which will allow you to enjoy the festivities until your number is called. While enjoying Elf Night, parents will want to have their cameras ready to record all the smiles and wonderment on their children’s faces.
Hot Cocoa, sponsored by Au Pair in America, and cookies will be provided by Santa’s little helpers while supplies last.
For safety reasons, vehicles will not be allowed to drive through Dorothy B. Oven Park, which is located at 3205 Thomasville Road, during the event. Public parking will be available next to the park at Thomasville Road Baptist Church, 3131 Thomasville Road.
Motorists traveling along Thomasville Road are urged to drive with caution in the vicinity of the park that night.
