Three Fun Family Events starting Friday, November 27th


Scavenger Hunt

Fun for all ages! You’ll be strolling around Salida to find a letter in the windows of local businesses. Match the right letter to the business and return the completed sheet to Su Casa! Furniture and Sleep Shop, 300 F Street by 5pm on 12/18/2020.

We will randomly draw 15 winners who have successfully matched all the letters to each business on December 23rd.

Scavenger Hunt forms can be picked up at Su Casa! Furniture and Sleep Shop, 300 F Street or you can download the form here [pdf].


Business and Home Decorating Contest

Join the contest by decorating your window display or home and tag #salidaholidayfest on your Instagram photo by 12/18/20 to be entered to win.

The top 5 photos for both homes and businesses will be given prizes! If you don’t have an Instagram account, please email your photo to and we will post it for you.


Santa Wishlist

Letters to Santa can be picked up and dropped off at either the Mountain Mail or Kaleidoscope Toys. Both locations are contact-free for pick-up and drop-off. You can also download it here [pdf].

We will be hosting a YouTube video of Santa reading the Night Before Christmas along with the letters on starting December 18th. We will post the link to the video to watch at your convenience.

Make sure your letter is in the special Santa Box by December 12th if you want to have it read by Santa on the video.
