The Santa on Tour event will make every attempt to visit each street in the city of Ripon. Tour dates are dependent on weather and fire district emergencies. A make-up date of Sunday, Dec. 20 has been set in case it is needed.

The chamber asks that Immediate families only gather on their own porch or front sidewalk to greet Santa as he travels by. It also asks individuals to remember face coverings and practice social distancing during the event.
