Santa is coming back to Davis Camp County Park this year to enjoy a great day on the beach. Mohave County Parks is presenting the second annual Santa on the River from 1 until 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, December 12 and 13.

 “We hosted this event last year and we were very pleased at the number of people who came to the park,” Mohave County Parks Administrator Shawn Blackburn said. Visitors will pay the standard one-day admission fee of $7 per vehicle, “or they can show their annual pass at the gate,” he said. “The hay rides around the park will be free. Decorations and displays are provided by local businesses with holiday themes. And, most importantly, Santa will be there to visit with the children and pose for pictures.”

                Visiting with Santa is free and parents can take their own photos of their children with the jolly old elf if they like. “However, a photographer will be there to take pictures of children with Santa if they are requested,” Blackburn said. This year Santa will be staying in Vacation House #43.

                Although all activities will take place from 1 until 5 p.m. December 12 and 13, “the decorations and displays can be viewed any day from December 1 through January 1,” Blackburn said. “The park will remain open for all regular activities including fishing, camping and vacation home rentals.”

 The park is located at 2251 Highway 68 in Bullhead City. For more information, call 928-754-7250 or visit
