North Pole Mailbox back at Calvert City Hall; schedule announced for 5th Ave. Christmas Celebration

Calvert City has a direct line to Santa this year as kids can mail their letters to Santa in the special North Pole mailbox located at Calvert City Hall. They can also expect a response in return.

Santa Letters will be accepted through Dec. 11 at Calvert City Hall. Letters must have the child’s name and return mailing address to receive a response. Stamps are not necessary. Parents can include tips within the envelope to help Santa’s helpers when writing the letter. Santa’s elves at Calvert City Convalescent Center will respond as quickly as possible.

Some of Santa’s helpers will be at the Calvert City Tree Lighting with paper and pens if anyone would like to drop a note to the North Pole there.

5th Avenue Christmas Celebration Schedule for Dec. 5 will include:

8 a.m. – Jingle All the Way 5K and Candy Cane Fun Run (Memorial Park)
