The American Helicopter Museum and Education Center (AHMEC) brings Santa via helicopter and Mrs. Claus to West Chester for its annual SantaFest on Saturday, December 8, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Santa lands at 11 a.m. to greet good girls and boys, hear wish lists and distribute goodie bags. He visits with each one in his colorful workshop in the museum.

The event also features special songs by Makin’ Music, a reading of Linda Kerschner’s book, Cheerful Chopper to the Rescue, by the author and wonderful volunteers with their dogs from PAWS for People pet therapy services. Ornament decorating and face painting add to the holiday festivities. And everyone receives a snack!
