We Believe

For 17 years, our beloved Santa Lamar has brought true magic and Christmas spirit to the families in Marietta Square. We are so thankful for the love he's shown and the time he's spent with our community every year, and we cherish every memory he's helped us make along the way.

This season, we ask you, our community, to help us give Santa all the love, support, and Christmas cheer we can provide. Though Santa loves our community with the biggest heart, he's made a tough but necessary decision to stay home at the North Pole this year to take care of his son, Derek, and his medical needs. And because Santa has become a special part of our own Marietta family, we at Winter Wonderland want to make sure Santa has the chance to focus completely on taking care of his loved ones without worry.

We believe in miracles and giving back to those in need, and we hope you can help us take that same Christmas cheer that we've come to love, and give it all back to Santa and his family. Below are ways to support—please help us spread the word, and let's share our magic with Santa.
