Marietta Parks & Rec Announces New Santa Event for 2020

Santa Blitz

November 4, 2020

CONTACT: Rachel Langelotti

Special Events Coordinator



In lieu of the Annual Tree Lighting event, the City of Marietta will officially open the holiday season with a Santa Blitz! During December 3rd through 5th, Santa Claus himself will be “Blitzen” his way through City of Marietta neighborhoods spreading some cheer and smiles. Residents along the routes will be able to catch a glimpse of Santa from outside their homes as he rides on a Marietta fire truck escorted by Marietta police. While he will not be stopping as he travels slowly on the route, be sure to step outside your door or along your sidewalk to waive and hear a jolly “Ho-ho-ho”. To help you with timing to see Santa pass by, we recommend following the City of Marietta’s Facebook page for live tracking and being ready 15-20 minutes prior to the estimated times listed on the directions. Santa’s schedules and maps are listed below. Information to visit with Santa on the Marietta Square during the month of December is also below.

*Santa has many streets to visit and limited time before heading back to the North Pole. Please understand Santa will not be able to visit every street in the City, but wishes everyone joy, laughter and peace this holiday season.
