With safety in mind, the Town of Vienna is sharing a handful of ho-ho-holiday activities for all ages. Check out what Santa has on his sleigh this year:

Dial in for Santa’s message of safety and celebration

Santa has a special 2020 holiday message for all Vienna boys and girls. Call 703-255-6333 and put your phone on speaker to hear and share Santa’s words of wisdom about kindness, caring, and safely being there for one another during the holiday season and into the coming year.

Sweaters and tea for holiday glee

Looking for a relaxing, safe, free way to get into the holiday spirit? Those ages 55+ can put on the kettle, wrap themselves in their favorite holiday hoodie, and join friends via Zoom for a Virtual Holiday Tea from 2-3 p.m. Friday, Dec 4.

To sign up, go to https://web1.vermontsystems.com/wbwsc/vaviennawt.wsc/splash.html and put in activity code #610702. Questions? Call Kathy Blevins at 703-255-7801.

WhereIsSanta Scavenger Hunt

Santa Claus is coming to Vienna! Where he'll be exactly, well, that's for you to figure out.

Join in the #WhereIsSanta Scavenger Hunt through Dec. 22. Use clues provided on the Town’s Facebook page (@townofviennava) to determine where you can find Santa each week.

Clues on Santa’s location will be posted at noon each Tuesday through Christmas week. You also may call the Vienna Community Center at 703-255-6360 to receive the clue. Santa will be on the move to a new #WhereIsSanta location each Tuesday morning.

Be sure to take your phone or camera to take a picture with Santa at each location. Share a photo of yourself with Santa at the scavenger hunt location on social media and tag Vienna, using the #WhereIsSanta hashtag, to be entered into a raffle for a $50 Amazon gift card. One raffle ticket will be awarded per family at each Santa location. A maximum of four raffle tickets 8per family will be issued.

A special thank you to Vienna Arts Society elves for sponsoring this event. For more information, contact Javonta Campbell at 703 255-6352.
