Where to Find Santa Claus Around the Cranberry Area this Holiday Season

Santa Claus is dropping into Zelienople and neighboring communities to hear your wishes and pose for photos.

'Tis the season for photos with Santa Claus.

Over the weekend, Santa was one busy guy. On Saturday and Sunday, he stopped at the Cranberry Township Municipal Center to share milk and cookies with all the good little boys and girls.
